The Appalachian Community Development Association, a non-profit organization whose purpose is to promote the educational, cultural, and social well-being of the Appalachian population of Greater Cincinnati, has sponsored the Appalachian Festival since 1974. The Appalachian Festival began in 1970 as a project of The Junior League of Cincinnati, and all profits go towards our grant program. The Purpose of the Appalachian Festival is to:

• Celebrate traditional Appalachian Music, Dance, Stories, Cooking, and other cultural treasures.
