ARF is coming to Appalachia! We'll be celebrating Celtic culture in theme, along with all of the typical Renaissance Faire fun in Piney Flats, TN. This is a family fun event based in history and fantasy. Costumes are not restricted to historical, but includes fantasy like fairies, goblins, pirates and more. Costumes are requested to be modest as it is a family oriented event. We'll be celebrating the region's rich Celtic culture and Appalachian heritage, along with all of the typical renaissance faire fun, featuring jousting, pirates, fairies, live music, highland games, performers, food, entertainment, libations, vendors, children's area and more!
Our story line takes place deep in Appalachia where 81,000 Scottish lowlanders and some English migrated to Ulster, Ireland for the opportunity to reestablish themselves and their families in a new land. Serving a major role in the American Revolution, these Celtic men and women dug in and held tight as libertarians of the New World, weaving a rich history of rebels, patriots and tradition. In typical RenFaire tradition, ARF will weave a historical fiction; ours is unique in that it is based on the strong roots established by the Scots-Irish, which still hold the mountains today.
