In the Spring
Saturday, May 17, 2014
Held the third Saturday in May, the Spring Bluegrass Festival is a full day of traditional Appalachian music.
During the day, various groups perform on the outdoor stage, with arts, crafts and food vendors throughout the grounds.
The day wraps up with a 7:30 bluegrass concert on the historic old stage in the auditorium. In 2013, the featured group was The Wilson Family of Brasstown, NC.
The Schoolhouse Cafe is open all day and prior to the evening concert.
Stecoah's Festivals celebrate the beginning and end of summer in the southern Appalachians with music, dance, food, and mountain arts and crafts.
