Fodor's Review

The oldest folk music festival in the country was established in 1928 by the folk music collector Bascom Lamar Lunsford. It takes place annually "along 'bout sundown" (in fact, 7 to 10 pm) for three nights (Thursday through Saturday) the first weekend of August. You'll see and hear the real thing here—old-timey Appalachian pickers, singers, clog dancers, and more. Tickets can be purchased at the door but it's best to order in advance online.
