From a press release:

Mountain Heritage Day accepts arts and crafts vendor applications

Artists and craftspeople are being sought to participate in the 40th annual Mountain Heritage Day, Western Carolina University’s annual fall festival of traditional Appalachian culture.

Mountain Heritage Day will be held Saturday, September 27, on the WCU campus in Cullowhee – always the last Saturday of the month.  The festival typically attracts more than 20,000 visitors who come to enjoy three stages of continuous music and dance, exhibitions of Cherokee Stickball and shape-note singing, a show of juried arts and crafts, and a variety of festival food.

This year, the festival celebrates its 40th anniversary in conjunction with the university’s 125th year.
The festival arts and crafts are judged for quality of workmanship, design, creativity and booth display.  Cash awards will be presented to the vendors with the best works.  All applicants are juried except the previous year’s winners of the arts and crafts awards.

Applications and instructions for arts and crafts vendors are available on the festival website, www.mountainheritageday.com.  Arts and crafts applications must be postmarked by May 9; later applications are not advisable because of the expected response, and the entry fee is greater.

To learn more about Mountain Heritage Day, call WCU’s Mountain Heritage Center at 828-227-7129.
