Rocky Mount’s special event “Fall Family Festival” will take place on Saturday, Oct. 13th from 11-4. “Fall Family Festival” is Rocky Mount’s inaugural fall event celebrating the harvest season with family fun. It is the perfect time to experience the beauty of fall at Rocky Mount. Come out and enjoy the cooler weather and the changing colors of the leaves. Family activities will include games and sack races and craft classes. Craft classes will include pumpkin painting, candle making, soap making, cornshuck doll making, and a basket making class at 2:00. All craft classes will require an additional ticket that can be purchased at the front desk. Craft class prices will vary. Mountain Boys Kountry Kitchen will also have their food truck here so you can spend the day. Picnic tables are available if you would like to bring lunch with you and enjoy the grounds.
Living history tours of the Cobb farm will take place all day along with other special demonstrations. Talk to the Cobb family about the harvest and their preparations for the upcoming winter. Demonstrations on site will include fireplace cooking, blacksmithing, black powder firing, gardening and apple cider pressing. Walk the historic site and greet the Cobb family and their friends and neighbors. Hear, see, and smell what fall was like in 1791!
