The Beavers Bend Folk Festival & Craft Show features turn-of-the-century crafts and demonstrations, folk music, a barnyard petting zoo and more.  Exhibitors and nearly 70 vendors will feature crafts and skills such as candlemaking, woodturning, the making of lye soap, knife making, quilting, broom making, paper making and blacksmithing.  There are children's activities and a smorgasbord of food.  Folk ensembles set the mood with the twang of banjos, the wail of fiddles and the ring of dulcimer strings.

Visitors to the Beavers Bend Folk Festival & Craft Show are invited to participate in hands-on opportunities to learn the art of vintage craft-making and mountain music, all amidst spectacular fall foliage.  This folk festival will feature herbalists sharing their knowledge, instrument makers exhibiting their work and quilters showing their best.   Bring the kids to the courtyard of the Forest Heritage Center during the Beavers Bend Folk Festival and enjoy a wealth of activities designed specifically for them.   Activities in the past have included live storytelling, a petting zoo with plenty of furry, kid-friendly creatures, and puppet shows with handmade paper puppets.

Lisa, thanks for your question! There is a special area for handicapped parking, and the indoor area is wheelchair accessible inside and all around. There are certain crafts that take place outside, and there are grassy areas where you will be able to view them. The only difficult part may be pushing the wheelchair from the designated parking area up a small, paved hill. For more information, please call the Forest Heritage Center at 580-494-6497. Enjoy your trip and thank you for using!

I would like to know about handicapped parking and the surface conditions of the road or sidewalk area that the craft vendors setup on. I will be traveling with a woman in a push wheelchair. Gravel is impossible to push through. Before we book accommodations, I need to know this info. Thanks!
