The Vance Birthplace is in full color in the month of October, the perfect backdrop for celebrating mountain life and culture! This event is free and celebrates the traditions and experiences of the people who call the North Carolina mountains home. Programs and demonstrations will feature old-time music, local craftsmen, and artists.
