If you don’t already know about my Southern Summer Bucket List, I’m posting some of the south’s best must-see destinations and must-do adventures. You can read more about my #SouthernSummerFun & enter a giveaway for Sue Rodman’s “100+ Free Things To In Atlanta,” book in the Kickoff post!
For those of you who are already following along, here’s the first event of the series.
24th Annual Native American Festival at Sycamore Shoals State Park in Tennessee
Straight from the official Tennessee State Parks website:
Saturday May 31 – Sunday June 1
A two-day celebration of our Native American heritage at Sycamore Shoals State Park! Award-winning dancers, storytellers, artists and scholars gather at the circle to share knowledge and demonstrate their skills. Discover Native American arts, music and historical legends, with an emphasis on the Cherokee culture. Join us Saturday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET. Admission charge. Connect with TN State Parks to learn more.
I have honestly never been to this particular festival. But, earlier this month, I was at the Rolling Thunder Mother’s Day Pow Wow, right here in Georgia. It is one of my favorite events of the year. There are plenty of opportunities to connect in this cultural learning extravaganza. I highly recommend these types of experiences.
Sycamore Shoals State Park is on the Watauga River in Northeastern Tennessee. In addition to the festival, there are several easy-moderate hikes to enjoy.
