 The 53rd Appalachian Festival

Mother’s Day Weekend 2024!

May 11th & 12th!

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 toward our grant program. The Purpose of the Appalachian Festival is to:

• Foster among Appalachian migrants in the Greater Cincinnati Area, a sense of pride in their heritage.
• Educate the public about Appalachian Culture.
• Provide a marketplace for traditional hand-made Appalachian Crafts.
• Celebrate traditional Appalachian Music, Dance, Stories, Cooking, and other cultural treasures. 

 The Festival is this weekend...SET-UP DAY:

Friday, May 10, 2024,

9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Be sure to arrange to be there no earlier than 9:00 am on Friday, and we will be open to check-in until 5:00 pm. 

Check-in has moved back to the South West Gate! - so we have rearranged our event to go back to our old layout for check-in!
