Hogskin History Day
Saturday, September 30
11 am - 5 pm

The 18th annual Hogskin History Day, sponsored by 91.9 FM/WUOT and East TN PBS will be held Saturday, September 30 from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Narrow Ridge Earth Literacy Center, 1936 Liberty Hill Rd, Washburn.

Hogskin History Day is a celebration of the history, music, and culture of the Hogskin Valley and surrounding Appalachian communities. This year’s celebration will highlight our forests and trees, and all the critters from fleas to white-tailed deer who live within our woods of East Tennessee. The day promises to be both full of fun and interesting information.

Guests will enjoy lots of good local food and entertainment as well as a chance to win up to $2000+. We extend a special welcome to our young friends with plenty of games, crafts, cakewalks, henna painting and bubble blowing. Delicious food, including homemade pizza from our cob oven, bean burritos, beans, cornbread, home baked goods and more will be available for purchase. In the afternoon we will offer free apple juice from our hand-cranked press using local organic apples. And yes, we will again provide free hand-cranked homemade ice cream on a first come first served basis (see event schedule for times apple juice and ice cream will be served).

Tours of our “off the grid”, environmentally friendly Narrow Ridge buildings and homes as well as our Natural Burial Preserve will be scheduled in the afternoon. Local vendors and exhibitors will showcase crafts from old time wool spinning to jewelry and art utilizing recycled/repurposed materials. Door prizes will be given every hour. Hogskin History Day t-shirts will also be available for purchase.

Admission and parking are FREE. For more information visit our website at www.narrowridge.org or call 865-497-2753.
