Annual Appalachia Day @ Hickory Nut Gap Farm

November 4, 2023 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm @ Hickory Nut Gap Farm

This is a Free Event!

Embrace the beauty and culture of the Appalachian Mountains at Hickory Nut Gap Farm in Fairview, NC, in support of the Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy. Appalachia Day will be held on Saturday, November 4th as a celebration for everything “Appalachia.” Come out and celebrate what you love about the mountains in support of local land and water conservation! There will be a raffle, food, music by The Hill Climbers, The Holler Choir, and Dan Shearin, crafts and more.

Appalachia Day invites attendees to immerse themselves in the essence of Appalachia with an array of engaging activities. You can enter a chance to win a private farm tour guided by Farm Director Virginia Hamilton, offering insights into the workings of this regenerative farm ($250 value). Take the kids on a hay ride or pony ride (operating hours are from 11:00 – 4:00). While enjoying the festivities, you can savor delectable offerings from food trucks on-site and cold beers, including the Appalachia Session IPA by Wicked Weed Brewing. What’s particularly noteworthy is that the proceeds from beer sales and a raffle held during the event will also contribute to the Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy. Wicked Weed Brewing will also match all bar sales!
