If you're looking for something to do on a beautiful Smoky Mountain fall weekend that includes great entertainment, lots of yummy home-cooked food, children's activities, and a first-class arts and crafts show, then spend the weekend at the Mountain Makins Festival in Morristown. The festival was recently designated as part of the new Tennessee Music Pathways.

This award-winning festival celebrates the very best of Appalachian culture, from crafts to music. In 2016 it was selected as the Best Festival in the Southeast by the Southeast Festivals and Events Association. It has been designated a “Top 20 Event in the Southeast” four times by the Southeast Tourism Society,  and was voted “Best Festival in East Tennessee” by readers of Tennessee Magazine.  Since the very first festival, authentic craftsmen have demonstrated folk-life skills, giving guests young and old a chance to see traditional basket weaving, blacksmithing, apple butter making, broom making, beekeeping, woodturning and other necessities of frontier life in Appalachia.  The historic Rose Center and surrounding grounds are filled with pottery, glasswork, jewelry, wood carving, soaps and lotions, fine art, fiber art, folk art, candles, wreaths, soft sculpture, baskets, toys and much, much more.
