The Great Smoky Mountain Heritage Center is proud to present the 2021 Winter Heritage Festival.
Join us on Saturday, January 23rd for a series of demonstrations, storytelling, and live music in our historic village. Among the demonstrations you will see are open-hearth cooking, weaving, spinning, and blacksmithing.
We’re also very pleased to welcome Joshua, Daniel, and Noah Smith–The Sons of Liberty! These classically trained violinists are dedicated to connecting audiences with their extraordinary history, from the elevated homes of Thomas Jefferson and George Washington to the frontier forts of Kentucky and Tennessee. The brothers perform their dynamic arrangements of authentic 18th Century music, ranging from rousing jigs and reels to tasteful classical selections. They will be on the grounds throughout the day but will be performing 30-minutes sets at 11:00 am and 2:00 pm.
Join us as we celebrate the rich cultural heritage of the Great Smoky Mountains. Unfortunately, our friends at the Cades Cove Preservation Association will not be able to join us this year, but we certainly will include information pertaining to Cades Cove in the day’s events.
The normal admission rates will apply: $10 per adult, $8 per senior adult, and $7 per child ages 6 to 17 years. Children 5 and under will receive free admission. For more information, please contact us at 865-448-0044.
