The 14th Annual Green Creek Heritage Festival will be held Saturday, Sept. 8 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Green Creek Community Center, Inc. in Green Creek off of Coxe Rd.
The ideas from the first festival are still in place with many artisans demonstrating various crafts. Parking and admission are free. The only costs are for food and the purchase of craft items.
There will be an antique car, truck and tractor show again this year. Registration begins at 7 a.m. You can pre-register for this event by contacting David Waldrop at 828-863-4071.
The Craft Fair, organized by Susie Kimbrell, includes many crafters who will be on site showing and selling their wares.
David Wallace will again cook the BBQ this year and David Page, of Green Creek, will smoke the chicken leg-quarters. Barbecue plates and sandwiches will be offered, along with hotdogs, ice cream, popcorn, lemonade, drinks and bottled water. Proceeds from the sale of food including the barbecue will go to the community center, a nonprofit community organization. Ten percent of all proceeds are designated to a college scholarship which is awarded to a Green Creek resident each year. Applications will be available at the festival or you can contact a board member.
Many of the same activities will be available this year including gospel, country and bluegrass music, storytellers, health fair and the 4-H livestock show.
For more information or to volunteer to help with the festival, contact Krista Haynes, Festival Chairperson at 828-817-0194.
