Arts, crafts and food vendors are being sought to participate in Mountain Heritage Day, Western Carolina University’s annual fall festival of traditional Appalachian culture.
This year’s Mountain Heritage Day will be held Saturday, Sept. 24, on the WCU campus in Cullowhee. The festival typically attracts more than 20,000 visitors who come to enjoy two stages of continuous music and dance, exhibitions of Cherokee stickball and shapenote singing, a midway of juried arts and crafts, and home-style food.
The festival arts and crafts are judged for quality of workmanship, booth display and design. Cash awards will be presented to the vendors with the best works.
