As the leaves begin to change and the cool air of autumn sets in, the Museum of Appalachia will host a simple celebration of the old-time fall harvest days.
On Friday, October 1st, the Museum will host a family-friendly event; a day to step back in time enjoy the sights, sounds, smells, and tastes of pioneer Southern Appalachian traditions and old-time demonstrations of the fall harvest season. Guests will enjoy a hayride, traditional music, a tractor exhibition, and old-time demonstrations such as blacksmithing, sorghum and apple butter making, sawmilling, and leatherworking. There are plenty of safe seasonal activities for children including an animal education and petting area, a hay maze, or for an additional charge, they can pick a pumpkin from the pumpkin patch or choose one to paint and take home.
To ensure the health and welfare of all our guests, advance tickets are recommended for this event. Advance tickets will be on sale at museumofappalachia.org on August 17th.
