Event Details

This activity-filled, family event commemorates the traditions of mountain living in the Cradle’s unique and beautiful setting. More than 100 forestry students, traditional craftsmen and exhibitors will be on site during the celebration. Festival-goers can cheer as college forestry students compete during the Woodsmen’s Meet that has the flavor of an old-time lumberjack competition. The students test their skills in a number of events including archery, axe throwing, crosscut sawing and pole felling. Traditional crafters will congregate along the Biltmore Campus Trail selling their wares and bringing the trail to life.
