The Old Timey Fall Festival
September 29th, 2018 from
10am to 4pm
On Burnsville’s beautiful Town Square, is just that, a good old fashioned local Festival. The Yancey History Association will host this event and invites everyone near and far to come out and be a part of this wonderful fun-filled day.
The theme of the festival is always “Old Timey”. This annual event is used to invite heritage-crafters to come out and demonstrate the old timey methods of producing their crafts so that the younger generations can see how their ancestors made these wonderful items. In the past there have been basket-makers, yarn spinners, corn grinders, beekeepers, candle makers, quilters, rug makers and many others demonstrating how they produce their heritage-craft. This year there’ll be all of these vendors and more demonstrating and selling their wares.
The Town Center will be open for restrooms and a place to sit all sponsored by the Yancey History Association.
