The focal point of the Appalachian Festival is the longstanding arts and crafts fair, now in its 56th year! The revitalized fair is launching with a new look and name, Appalachian Makers Market.
Within Appalachia is a rich and unique history of handcrafting; from culinary arts to metalworking. The new Appalachian Makers Market celebrates the region’s finest makers. Throughout the years the display of intricate quilts around the rotunda has been one of the most popular attractions. The Appalachian Treasures Quilt Show will remain an integral part of the new Appalachian Makers Market. Visitors will find their favorite vendors with the addition of new exhibitors showcasing unique handmade wares, both traditional and contemporary.
