Head to Clayton, Georgia in October to join the Foxfire Mountaineer Festival. This is a celebration of the heritage of the Southern Appalachian Mountains, and it’s a wonderful place to learn about historic skills and trades. Local and regional vendors will be serving food, and you can listen to bluegrass and gospel music on the stage. This festival is all about keeping history and tradition alive, so come ready to learn about things like woodworking, textiles, blacksmithing, land pottery.
