It’s one of the world’s finest outdoor Mother’s Day shopping experiences -- nearly 100 crafters from different areas feature the finest in mountain handicrafts.
Crafters will display their goods, such as hand-made quilts and clothing, furniture, pottery, metal sculptures, dried flower arrangements, hand-crafted jewelry, children's toys, leather goods, stained glass, musical instruments, baskets, handmade dolls, and more. A talented collection of fiber arts specialists in weaving, drop spinning, braiding, and loom work will also be on hand making and selling their masterpieces.

RE: Announcement for 51st Appalachian Festival for 2021
To our valued Vendor:
This has been a trying year for our families, communities, and our nation. Last year we cancelled our three-day springtime festival due the pandemic. Now a year later, we find ourselves once again having to make decisions about our 2021 festival possibilities.
I wanted to let you know after considering all of our options with Coney staff, and thinking about everyone’s safety and the well-being of our vendors, musicians, reenactors, artisans, volunteers, students, patrons, and our community, the A.C.D.A has decided to once again postpone the 51st Appalachian Festival for 2021.
51st Appalachian Festival will be moved to Mother’s Day Weekend 2022.
Our plans are to return next year stronger and ready to celebrate Appalachian traditions.
I will send out a 2022 application when we have the application ready.
Thank you for your patronage and we are sad that we cannot hold this amazing event. We look forward to seeing you next year at the 51st Appalachian Festival!
Stay safe and healthy,
Shanon R. Rice
Application for 2022 Coming Soon.
