Education Fall Folklore Jamboree returns to Milan

If you’re looking for a family outing that’s unique, educational and also fun, mark your calendars for Saturday, Oct. 16. That’s the day of the 12th annual Fall Folklore Jamboree held on the grounds of the University of Tennessee AgResearch and Education Center at Milan. This all-day event takes visitors back to a time of horse-drawn plows, spinning wheels, and old-fashioned bluegrass pickers playing on the porch. With more than 130 friendly folk artists demonstrating traditional farming, cooking and home life skills, plus a long lineup of award-winning gospel and bluegrass bands visitors can truly get a glimpse of 19th century life in Tennessee. “Fall Folklore is a great place to relax and enjoy a Saturday with family,” says Dr. Blake Brown, Director of the UT Research and Education Center at Milan. “It’s also a very educational event. Fall Folklore provides an excellent opportunity for children and adults to learn about the heritage of our ancestors and the historical significance of agriculture in West Tennessee.” Throughout the day, skilled craftsmen will demonstrate traditional weaving, knitting, woodcarving, blacksmithing, plus more. Visitors can see horse plowing and logging, as well as a working grist mill, and ride in a horse-drawn wagon. You can delight in the melodic sounds of time-honored music, and if you’re hungry, you can sample fresh apple cider and old-fashioned kettle corn made right on the grounds. Another highlight…a special presentation on organic gardening. Learn tips handed down from early settlers on how to compost, fertilize and grow your own fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs naturally. Each year the Jamboree is held at the West Tennessee Agricultural Museum, located on Highway 70/79 in Milan.   The museum houses a vast collection of agricultural artifacts that tell the history of rural development in Tennessee.   During the Jamboree, visitors are free to tour the museum to learn more about the agrarian lifestyle of the past.  The Fall Folklore Jamboree runs from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. rain or shine.  Admission is $5.00 for adults, $2.00 for children ages 3-12, and free for children under the age of two.
