The market will also feature delicious eats like Bandit BBQ, Twisted Sister Tacos, Gils Beef Pit, Sugar Attack Cookie Company, Mountain Concessions Kettle Corn, Serendipity Italian Ice plus many local jams, jellies, maple syrups, honey, salsa and a local farmer’s market.

Family friendly activities include cloggers, line dancing, ballon art, coffee & canvas painting, veggie stacking and hot pepper eating contests.  Harmony Wood Arts and others will be demonstrating their craft, as well.

Musicians include Lost Cannon playing Friday afternoon from 2pm-3pm and Shane Ingram & Friends playing Friday afternoon from 4pm-5pm. On Saturday, Buddy Allen and The Cheat River Band will play from 1:30-5:30pm.
