COSBY, Tenn. – The “Celebrating Cosby: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow” community programs start 7-8:30 p.m. today, Friday June 22 through Aug. 17 at the Cosby Campground Amphitheater.
“Celebrating Cosby” honors the rich cultural and natural history of the Cosby area. Join park staff and community members at programs that vary each week, including mountain music, moonshiners, storying telling, sunset and lantern hikes, farming and orchards, clogging, cooking, and more.
The first program on June 22 features local banjo player, David McClary, who will play claw-hammered style banjo music. On June 29, Mark Ramsey, Digger Manes and Friends will share stories about moonshining history. The July and August schedules will be available at the Sugarlands Visitor Center.
In the event of rain, “Celebrating Cosby” programs will move to the covered picnic pavilion adjacent to Cosby Campground. Programs will be held rain or shine. Visitors are welcome to find seating in the amphitheater or bring their own chairs or blankets.
