Mountain Heritage Day

The 44th annual Mountain Heritage Day will be the combination of a good old-fashioned mountain fair and showcase for Southern Appalachian music, arts, dance, and song. Bring the whole family to this fun and free festival to enjoy music, historical demonstrations, contests, awards, food, and crafts—all on the Western Carolina University Campus. Meet at the Nature Center at 10 am to carpool to the event and expect to return to the Preserve at 2 pm. Participants should bring water and snacks. Reservations are appreciated by September 27 and can be made by contacting Jen at or 828.631.1061.
