Greening up the Mountains Festival

Celebrate the arrival of spring with the Greening Up the Mountains street festival in downtown Sylva, about an hour's drive west of Asheville. This free festival celebrates the greening leaves as they work their way up the mountainsides in the Great Smoky Mountains. It is held 10 AM to 4 PM and draws 12,000+ visitors each year.

Featured craft demonstrators will include wood carvers, cane chair makers, corn shuck doll crafters, basket makers, crochet artists, knitters, and more. There will be plenty of food options, including traditionally-made mixed pickles and old fashioned ice cream.

Greening up the Mountains began as an Earth Day celebration, and it continues to focus on sustainability and promotion of local businesses and civic groups.

April 25 - 2020
Time - 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
