This is a festival of Traditional Dance, Music, and  Song, sponsored by the Fayetteville Traditional Dance Society. It takes  place at the Mount Sequoyah Retreat Center, a 32 acre wooded campus just 5 minutes from the Fayetteville square. It is a participatory  festival with multiple workshop opportunities including contra, International, and square dancing, along with fiddle, banjo, guitar, as  well as ballad and harmony singing.
