Blue Ridge Folklife Festival Foods2021-07-16T14:19:27+00:00


When hunger strikes, visitors to the Blue Ridge Folklife Festival can choose from two dozen old-time foods prepared by local families and civic groups.

This is the place for real homemade Blue Ridge country foods–no hamburgers and hot dogs here–all prepared on site.

Some visitors come just to eat their way through the festival.

The 2021 Blue Ridge Folklife Festival Menu is still under construction.
