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.
