The 19th annual Greening Up the Mountains Festival will be held Saturday, April 23, 2016 on Main and Mill Streets in historic downtown Sylva.
The celebration will include fine arts and handmade craft demonstrations, a 5K run, two music stages which will feature Bluegrass, Country and Mountain entertainers, along with a children's talent show. There will be more kids’ activities, food, and fun for everyone!
A project of the Town of Sylva, this is the year’s largest annual event, and brings 10-12,000 residents, visitors, and families to our beautiful downtown. Strengthened by its early roots as an Earth Day celebration, the festival includes a focus on environmental protection, sustainability, and promotion of local businesses and civic groups.
