Celebrating the Appalachian Trail and outdoor recreation, our first festival of the season is happening the weekend of April 21st, 22nd and 23rd. This annual event brings local trail enthusiasts together with thru-hikers to share stories and enjoy music and activities.
Friday night, enjoy a Spaghetti Dinner at Mosaic Gourmet and then stroll down the AT to the Welcome Center to hear a talk entitled 'Lessons From an Older Thru-Hiker' by David Brill. Saturday will be the big day with early morning yoga, live music, food, gear and information vendors, hiker games, AT movies, ducky race and evening hiker feed at Laughing Heart Hostel. Sunday morning fuel up for the trail with a generous Pancake Breakfast at Mosaic Gourmet.
This years festival is sponsored by and benefits the Madison County Group Home of Hot Springs.
Donations for the Silent Auction are appreciated and may be dropped off at the Welcome Center.
