A select group of local artisans will be on hand to display their work. Take home something beautiful and unique as your personal souvenir of the first-ever Mountain Hope Appalachian Field Festival.

On Saturday, Oct. 6, in Emert’s Cove, Chef Adam Palmeno will prepare a pig roast as a very special fundraiser for Mountain Hope Good Shepherd Clinic. Palmeno and his catering company, Private Chef, are already earning rave reviews across East Tennessee for his wonderful food:

Palmeno will prepare roast pig and all the trimmings in his own style. His specialty is New World cuisine, which takes traditional recipes and adds a twist. This will be no ordinary barbecue.

…to make the event even more exceptional, there will be music throughout the day:

Acclaimed singer and songwriter Jimbo Whaley will perform with Greenbrier, and other local favorites are also scheduled to appear.

Local artisans and crafters will also be on site… so you’re certain to be able to take home some beautiful, unique souvenirs with undeniable Appalachian character.
