Georgia’s 2018 Spirit of Appalachia Food, Wine & Art Fest

Southern Appalachia history and heritage will be celebrated in grand style during the annual Spirit of Appalachia Food, Wine & Art Festival, September 15, 2018 at the Hardman Farm Historic Site in Sautee Nacoochee, Georgia.A vista with the mountains in the background, with lush green hills in foreground and title, "Celebrating the culture of Appalachia."

The historic farm is located in the northeast Georgia mountains, south of Helen and just minutes from Lucille’s. It’s a beautiful site with 173 acres and dozens of historic buildings, located on what was once the Unicoi Turnpike, a main byway for travelers through the area. It’s also home to the Nacoochee Mound, an ancient Cherokee burial site. Be sure to take some time and stroll the grounds to get a glimpse of life as it used to be.

Spirit of Appalachia Food, Wine & Art Festival will take over the farm’s open field with tents scattered about. Visitors can stroll among them to sample dishes made with Georgia products, sip Georgia wines and beers, and watch demonstrations by celebrity chefs. The all-day fest also includes a stage with a variety of musical performances, and booths with wonderful Georgia artists and artisans selling works in a range of mediums.
