Crafts fair, demonstrations at Green Creek Heritage Festival

The 14th annual Green Creek Heritage Festival will be held Saturday, Sept. 8 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. at the Green Creek Community Center.
As in the past, the festival will feature a large variety of crafts and some crafters will demonstrate their crafts throughout the day. All crafts for sale must be handcrafted. For information concerning crafts available this year and how to participate in the craft fair, contact Susi Kimbrell, crafters chairperson, at 828-863-4896. Room is still available if you would like to show and sell your handmade craft.
The Joe Rinehart Country Store, representing a general mercantile, will be located in the gym and offers a good selection of items. Homemade jams, jellies and other canned goods will be available. Baked goods are also sold in the store. Each crafter is asked to donate one item to the country store which ensures a wide variety of inventory. In the past antique items have also been stocked.
At the farmers market, you will be able to purchase apples and other fresh, locally grown produce.
The Polk County Historical Association will be onsite to share information about Polk County’s past. A large amount of information about Green Creek history and memorabilia will be displayed in the historical room. Along with historical facts, the society will share information passed from one generation to the next by stories and family history. Stop by and visit with these historians and learn more about the olden times of the area.

Handicapped parking is available and all areas are handicapped accessible. No pets, outside solicitation or food vendors are allowed at the festival.
