Olde Folks Party

The Old Folks Party is a tradition that goes back to the beginning of the Folk School. When the school started in 1925, hundreds of local residents pledged their support through physical labor, teams of mules, money, and even land donations. Many of the skills we teach at the Folk School today were passed down through these generations, often grandparents teaching children weaving, wood carving, or chair making.

This party is a time to come together, reminisce, and acknowledge our Appalachian history and how it has helped us build to this point!
