Frozen Head State Park and Natural Area will be celebrating its 75th Anniversary in conjunction with Heritage Day, Saturday, August 11 and we invite the public to come enjoy the arts, crafts, food and music of the Cumberland Mountains. Heritage Day is an event celebrating the folk music and crafts of traditional Appalachian and Cumberland Plateau culture found in and around Frozen Head.

Heritage Day features craftspeople, demonstrators, and musicians from around the region performing throughout the day. This year’s event will include a celebration of Tennessee State Park's 75th Anniversary. Bring the kids to play children’s games, listen to stories, and make corn husk dolls. There will also be handmade jewelry, toys, and more. Primitive weapons and traditional demonstrations will take you back in time. Food vendors on site with delicious plate lunches, funnel cakes, and more. Come join us. It’s free to get in.
