Appalachian Festival Is Back Mother's Day Weekend | Arts & Culture
Mother’s Day weekend in Cincinnati just isn’t the same without the region’s most popular spring festival – the Appalachian Festival. And the three day event is back – May 11 to 13 at Coney Island – packed with down home fun for the whole family.
The 43rd annual Appalachian Festival -- presented by The Appalachian Community Development Association to help raise awareness of Appalachian culture – will re-create authentic mountain life with music from the hills performed by great bluegrass musicians, foot stompin’ dance performances, storytelling, more than 100 hand-craft artisans, a pioneer village and multi-media coal mining exhibit, and mouth watering mountain cooking.
The Appalachian Festival has always been known as a value-packed festival with modest ticket pricing. And now it is even better: Friday, May 11, is extra special with a half-price admission all day and night long. “Frugal Friday” pricing is adults $4, seniors $2, and children 4-11 $1 (children under 3 get free admission.) Pricing on Saturday and Sunday is adults $8, seniors, $4, children 4-11, $2. Parking is $6.
Festival hours are Friday 9 a.m.-9 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m.-9 p.m., and Sunday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
