The Cumberland Homesteads Tower Association is seeking artists, crafters, authors and food vendors for the 10th annual Apple Festival. Set for Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 21-22, the festival is held on the grounds of the Tower Museum and Homestead Elementary School at the junction of highways 127S and 68 just south of Crossville, Tenn. Attendance last year reached the 10,000 mark.
Authors' works must be original, and arts and crafts for sale must be handmade by the exhibitors. Resale items are not permitted. Artists and crafters are welcome to demonstrate their skills for attendees.
Food vendors seeking approval should submit a list of food and beverage items along with their contact information to Vicki Vaden via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone at 931-456-5699.
That is also the number to call to have an application mailed. Or download an application at www.cumberlandhomesteads.org/applefest.html.
