Opening Day Appalachian Folkways Celebration

Sat, Apr 4, 2020
10:00 am


General Admission

Opening Day at the Cradle of Forestry celebrates Appalachian culture and heritage from the days of the Biltmore Forest School. Journey back in time and visit a small 1900’s mountain community. Explore how people of the day worked and played along our historic Biltmore Campus Trail. Interact with demonstrators that will be bringing the community to life with traditional craft and music. 

 

What to Do:

During our Opening Day celebration you can: 

  • Help plow our garden in the traditional way with the help of friendly draft horses.  
  • Mingle with living history demonstrators and crafters who bring Appalachian culture to life in our historic buildings along the Biltmore Campus Trail. 
  • Listen and dance to traditional music. 
  • Enjoy the paved, pet-friendly and accessible trails, as well as in-door exhibit hall, film, scavenger hunts, and more. 

What kind of crafts will I see?
