About Americana Folk Festival
Since its inception in 2004, The Americana Folk Festival (AFF) is a grassroots event that continues to build an audience dedicated to better living and listening. With a quality-over-quantity approach often lost in bigger, corporate music events, AFF strives to create a sense of the back-porch “picking party”, even amidst thousands of audience members.
Nestled within a private campground in one of Tennessee’s most beautiful state parks, music begins in the morning and continues on three stages throughout the day and into the night. Audience members can also stroll through a wooded village laden with folk and outsider artists, craftsman, and instrument builders. Fans can even participate in organized nature activities like hikes and bike rides or stumble upon various open jam sessions throughout the grounds.
Contrary to the event’s name, AFF isn’t strictly an Americana or folk music festival, but a variation on a theme. With a vibe more Sundance than Merlefest, the event creates the place where diverse artists and fans gather to freely express their love for roots music.
About Day Hike and Mountain Bike
Join Keeley at 11am for a 5 mile hike along the overnight trail, accessible from the group camp. She will point out spots to turn back if you are interested in a shorter hike, or you can continue to hike further if you are interested in a longer hike. Please bring plenty of water, snacks, and good hiking shoes. We will gather at the trail head at 11am. Five miles should take us about 2.5 hours on average.
Dogs are not allowed on the hiking trails, but are allowed at the festival.
Join Sheryl and Paul for a mountain bike ride at 1pm at the Montgomery Bell State Park bike trail head. Sheryl will lead the beginner/intermediate ride and Paul will lead the expert/advanced ride. Bring your own bike, plenty of water, and snacks. If you aren’t sure where the trail head is, Sheryl and Paul will be at the Team Green booth prior to the ride.
