Applefest 2010

Officially named “Brushy Mountain Apple Festival”, this annual event is held in North Wilkesboro, North Carolina the first Saturday in October. This one-day event draws close to 160,000 visitors who enjoy local arts and crafts vendors, local organizations, food vendors, and performances of musicians and school groups. I was invited as an exhibitor to demonstrate primitive living and survival skills.

Several streets are blocked off for this event. Survivaltek was located on the West end of Main Street on the lower level parking area where I was able to set up the Teepee and displays of survival crafts and products. Of course, firecraft demos were on the agenda as well as baking fish in clay. I over-heard many country folk who recognized the “rabbit gum” or live box trap on display. I also met other enthusiasts who shared their personal experiences. Meanwhile, I’m taking notes and adding to my knowledge base which I enjoy sharing with my website visitors and newsletter subscribers. If you’re in the area next year about this time, stop by Applefest and look for the Teepee…
