October 27-29, 2017
Celebrating 42 Years of Family Fun!

Mountain Makins is an award-winning festival which started in 1976 as a way to raise funds to save historic Rose School. The festival continues to support the preservation of the Rose School building, provides Arts Education for residents of 5 counties, and serves to keep Appalachian history and culture vibrant and alive for generations to come. Festival goers come year after year, from distances far and wide, to immerse themselves in the very best of Appalachian culture, food, music, dance, crafts, artwork, and fun!

The celebration begins with a Preview Party on Friday, October 27. Advance-only tickets for this special event are $25. Guests will be treated to a gourmet buffet and exclusive early-bird shopping. Additionally, Preview guests are admitted to the festival free on both Saturday and Sunday. (Festival Hack–Preview Tickets bring best value and access to the festival.)
