Festival Themes:

CULTIVATING: Explore the historical and modern ways in which we are cultivating community, collective agricultural sustainability, creative food & drink, and a resilient shared future.

PRESERVING: Journey with us as we trace the traditions and heritage of both old and new foodways and celebrate the intersecting diversity of cultures that connect us all through food and drink.

COLLABORATING: Honor a fiercely independent community of thinkers, creators, and doers through our rich history of cooperation, sharing, mutual respect, and learning from one another. Together we stand apart.

INNOVATING: Meet the makers, farmers, creators, thought-leaders and cutting-edge innovators who are developing new techniques and flavors for the modern Appalachian table, with an abiding respect to the rich regional heritage and people that came before.
