Home Craft Days

Music schedule for the 50th Home Craft Days Festival are up! Also, the Trail of the Lonesome Pine drama will be a part of Home Craft Days this year by giving two free performances on Saturday, October 16.

MECC is making a few changes to our Home Craft Days annual Friday night reception and Saturday morning Donor Recognition Breakfast in light of COVID-19 concerns. The annual donor breakfast has been cancelled due to COVID 19 spread and the inability to host the early morning event outdoors. However, the Friday night reception will be held with food vending to be offered outdoors. MECC will host Dough and Joe of Big Stone Gap and Mr. Kettle Corn of Wirtz in the field adjacent to the Goodloe Center. Free popcorn, donuts, and coffee drinks will be provided from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. In addition, Backdraft BBQ will also be onsite, as a dinner option for paying customers. Please join us Friday night for music from the McLain family, the Blue Ridge Girls, and more beginning at 6 p.m. All attendees are invited to enjoy free coffee, donuts, and popcorn in our outdoor seating areas. Masks will be required in the Goodloe Center during the concert.
