Don’t miss Wears Valley Fall Festival on Friday, October 16 through Sunday, October 18, 2015. Each day the fun begins at 10:00 a.m. The festival closes on Friday and Saturday at 6:00 p.m. and on Sunday at 3:00 p.m. The event and all the activities are free, so there’s no excuse not to gather up the entire family and spend the day in beautiful Wears Valley!
A highlight of the festival is the Vintage Baseball Game at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday for kids of all ages. There’ll be a Kid’s Craft Tent with old-time games and educational and fun recycling activities from upcycled products. And what’s a Fall Festival without a good old-fashioned Potato Sack Race and Obstacle Course (these races will be on Saturday only).
You’ll also have the opportunity to meet the cutest festival attendee, Evie Sue, the Litter Retrieving Dog, and her friends Ed and Susan Harp who’ve authored the children’s book, “Evie Goes Clean and Green.” This amazing yellow Lab will show you just how fun and easy it is to “Go Green!”
Of course no autumn get-together would be complete without a plethora of Southern eats and Arts & Crafts that reflect the traditions of Smoky Mountains. And the traditions of the Smokies continue with the live bluegrass and old-time mountain music by Boogertown Gap. And for those that still believe Elvis is everywhere, well he can be spotted in Wears Valley as the King is channeled by talented Elvis impersonator Robert Keifer.
