Historic Johnson Farm Festival April 24 near Asheville, NC

This year marks the 20 year anniversary of the historic Johnson Farm Festival. Keeping in mind that WNC thrives on the small farms so integral to our community over the years, here is a chance for you to celebrate farming festivities!! Johnson Farm is no longer a farm, but a heritage farm museum that educates and celebrates the farming life. On the property are historic buildings that date back to the 1880's, as well as pasture, fields, streams, woodlands... you get the picture. It is a great place to share with your children "farming in the old days," and discussing how it has changed (or has not, in the matter of many a small farm in this area).
The festival is their biggest fundraising event of the year, so I'm sure they go all out. Wagon rides, storytelling, crafts, animals, music, food... you can make a day of it and the kids will be thrilled! You can sit back and relax in the sunshine and leisurely watch the day go by as the activities whisk your kids along.
Then, you can return for a leisurely evening to your Asheville, NC vacation cabin, cook a good dinner (or stop on your way back!), and relax into the evening. The day is low- energy, and the feeling is goo-ood!! Carolina Mornings offers some great NC vacation packages that can save you money, and we have FREEBIES for every night of your stay! You can't beat a spring trip to Asheville and a stay in a mountain cabin- the kids will love it (and so will you!!)
