Description

The 35th Annual Tennessee Fall Homecoming will take place October 10 thru 12, 2014 at the Museum of Appalachia in Clinton, TN. The three-day Homecoming is one of the nation's largest and most authentic music and folk festivals.

Each day, musicians perform on five stages, filling the air with traditional mountain, folk, bluegrass, Gospel, and old-time country tunes. The weekend includes demonstrations of pioneer skills, a large craft fair with authentic Appalachian artisans, and traditional Southern foods. The Museum offers a picturesque backdrop for this annual festival, with its dozens of historic log buildings, display halls filled with authentic artifacts, and gardens and farm animals surrounded by split-rail fences.

Fall Heritage Day, a special interactive program for school children, will be Thursday, October 10th. This day of music, games, and learning is designed for public and private school groups, home-schooled groups, and individual parents and children. Three-day Homecoming tickets include admission to Fall Heritage Day.

All Homecoming proceeds go toward the Museum's mission to preserve Appalachian culture & heritage. A non-profit organization since 2002, the Museum is an official affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution.
