NORRIS, Tenn. – Tickets are now on sale for the 38th Annual Tennessee Fall Homecoming Oct. 6-8 at Museum of Appalachia.

The Homecoming kicks off Oct. 6 with genre-bending powerhouse group, The SteelDrivers—fresh off of their 2016 Grammy win for Best Bluegrass Album.

Multi-award winning country singer, Lee Ann Womack, whose career boasts more than 6 million album sales, will perform Oct. 7 along with bluegrass super-group, The Earls of Leicester, assembled and led by dobro-master, Jerry Douglas.

Tennessee Fall Homecoming’s first-ever “Family Day” debuts Oct. 8. The weekend is capped-off with a day full of games, animals, storytelling, demonstrations, and music. Parents and children will enjoy hands-on activities as they learn about Appalachian history and culture—all at an affordable rate.

Homecoming will continue to offer three days packed with music, traditional demonstrations, and heritage arts. At least 50 musicians are slated to perform; the full music lineup will be announced in the coming weeks.

Guests can enjoy traditional Appalachian dancing, authentic artisans demonstrating and selling their crafts; old-time mountain demonstrations such as sorghum and lye soap making, basket weaving, blacksmithing, sassafras tea making, and more. Guests can tour the historic Pioneer Village and taste fine Southern fare. Student Heritage Day kicks off the festival Oct. 6 with activities for young folks.
