In the interest of our visitors, volunteers, vendors, exhibitors and the community, the 45th Mountain Makins In-Person Festival has been postponed until fall, 2022. 
The limited availability of vendors and volunteers, coupled with vendors' ongoing concerns for public health, have forced the Board of Directors to make this difficult decision.  Without the resources which we normally rely, we simply could not create the family focused atmosphere for the Mountain Makins Festival that citizens have come to expect.  We look forward to the return of our community celebration to promote the traditions and heritage of Appalachia in 2022.  Until then, we are producing and premiering a video  to highlight the best of the festival on October 23rd at 10am on this website and social media and presenting an online marketplace.  Please tune in to watch!
