Rocky Mount Fall Festival set Oct. 12

Published 9:05 am Monday, September 30, 2019

Rocky Mount will host its annual fall festival Oct. 12 with supervised harvest-themed crafts geared toward children, but fun for all kids and adults of all ages.

Crafts will include corn shuck dolls, candle making and pumpkin painting. Also, demonstrations such as blacksmithing, cider making and hatchet-throwing will also be featured throughout the day.

One of the biggest attractions in Fall Festival history returns this year — making apple butter on-site the old-fashioned way. This demonstration will be ongoing throughout the entire event. Apple butter will also be available for purchase on-site all day.

Also, as in years past, the Cobb House and other historic buildings will feature seasonal interpretation and storytelling. And Rocky Mount’s Master Gardener volunteers will host tours in the historic gardens.

The Fall Family Festival runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $10 per person. Members of the Rocky Mount Historical Association are admitted free. Tickets for supervised crafts can be purchased on-site for an additional fee.

Rocky Mount is located at 200 Hyder Hill Road, Piney Flats — just off Highway 11-E, midway between Johnson City and Piney Flats.
