The 40th Annual John C Campbell Folk School Fall Festival in Brasstown NC

Each year, the John C Campbell folk school hosts its Fall Festival on the first Saturday and Sunday of October. This year marks the 40th annual Fall Festival.

They also make a quilt banner representing each year that they host the fall festival. I always enjoy getting a picture of them and sharing them with you, so look below for links to one’s from previous years. There is some great talent that goes into making them. There’s also a picture of the long row of the banners from each year.

Inside the big barn, they always have some great music going on both days. Here is a wonderful bluegrass band that we caught a video of and wanted to share with you. He is singing about all kinds of stuff, including chicken bones! It’s pretty funny, but there’s no doubt it’s good, exciting music when you’re standing there watching it.

Basket from Folk School Fall Festival

There always some incredibly talented artist there as well. They are selling their products they handcraft. This year, we bought a beautiful handmade basket that is designed to hang on the wall. It’s quite large and is perfect for hanging Jessica’s grandmother’s blanket. It truly is beautiful and took a lot of talent to make it! There are so many incredible vendors there, there’s no way that she can leave without being in awe of the talent that is there. I even bought a handcrafted buffalo belt for only $30 that was custom fit for me! It was far better than anything you can buy in a store for essentially the same price.

When The Fall Festival comes back in 2014, you should definitely go! Go ahead and put on your calendar for the first Saturday and Sunday in October. We look forward to seeing you there! ๐Ÿ™‚

John C Campbell Folk School Fall Festival 2012 in Brasstown NC

Every year, the John C. Campbell Folkschool has their Fall Festival on the first Saturday in October. Fortunately, this year was no different! We went on Saturday, and the turnout was astronomical! There were lots of vendors, music, people, and fun!

One of my favorite parts is all the booths for the vendors. You can find everything from hand crafted walking sticks, pottery, decorations, canoes, kettle corn, photography, paintings, knives, iron works, you name it! This year we took lots of pictures while we were there in Brasstown NC, so enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‚

The John C Campbell Folk School Fall Festival in Murphy NC 2011

This year’s Fall Festival at the John C Campbell Folk School in Murphy was a great turn out! The live music was amazing – especially the ones we heard! This year, we didn’t get to stay as long as we normally do. Our newborn was fussing his little head off after a few hours so we had to go! ๐Ÿ™‚

In keeping with tradition, I always enjoy checking out the banner for each Fall Festival, and you can see 2011’s here. It’s a great celebration right in the heart of Brasstown, NC. I always enjoy it!

John C Campbell Folk School Fall Festival 2010

The Banner for the 2010 Folk School Fall Festival

Every year, The John C. Campbell Folk School hosts one of my personal favorite Fall Festivals in Murphy, NC. Thousands of people flock to the small town of Brasstown, NC to celebrate the changing of the seasons.

This year was no different. It was great! There were lots of people and some really good vendors this year. Everything from paintings, photography, prints, glass work, iron work, chairs, you-name-it was represented this year. All the vendors were great to speak with and where more than open to sharing their experiences and how they accomplished their craft.

Music and dancing is always a large part of the celebration. My

I love hearing the violins every year!

personal favorite is watching the younger kids play violins – they’re amazingly talented. Not only that, our church choir even sings at the barn which is always neat to watch.

If you’ve never been to a Fall Festival, you certainly need to! There’s nothing like it – just be sure to come hungry and ready to walk! ๐Ÿ™‚
