The second annual Greenbrier Mountain Festival is scheduled for Friday, July 23, from noon until 9 p.m. and Saturday, July 24, from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. at Hills Creek Baptist Church.

The festival features a combination of mountain crafts, Bluegrass Gospel music, scrumptious homemade food, kids activities, engines, and more. Last years festival was a huge success and we expect this year to be bigger and better with over 40 vendors. The festival will emphasize a step back in time to the rich history and culture of the Smoky Mountains community of Pittman Center.

“You will see amazing products made in our community where our local businesses will display products that we still hold close to our hearts in keeping the traditions alive that our forefathers established dating back to the 1700’s,” said Dustin Shultz, Pastor of Hills Creek Baptist Church.

The Greenbrier Mountain Festival will feature the following:

A Kids Camp with lots of fun for kids and adults with many games, a bounce house, slide, and all kinds of other activities. It will be a great place for kids to enjoy while adults shop locally at the festival.

Spring House: Live entertainment throughout the day featuring some of the best local Bluegrass Gospel bands that genuinely represent the sounds of our mountain heritage.

Crafters Corner: Family owned local businesses creating unique arts and crafts with one of a kind homemade products including handmade crafts from woodworkers, blacksmithing and more.

Garden of Feedin’: Folks in the community presenting all kinds of homemade traditional food and goodies.

The Greenbrier Mountain Festival is free admission and is located at Hills Creek Baptist Church at 154 Hills Creek in Pittman Center — only minutes from Gatlinburg, TN in the Smoky Mountains.
