Michaelmas Festival 2012

Yes, we know the Feast of St. Michael and All Angels was last Saturday, but for scheduling reasons, our annual Michaelmas Festival is this coming Saturday, October 6. And everything is ready to welcome you.

Kingstone Lisle, the founder's house, is bedecked in its fall finery.

Newbury House B&B has a freash coat of paint and new shingles on its Mansard roof. The rooms were refreshed earlier (see here).

Christ Church has been freshly repainted, as well.

And Mother Nature is working hard to welcome you.

There will be gospel and old-timey music in the church, a tea to die for with sittings at noon and 2 pm, crafts in the church yard, English country dancing on the lawn, and much more. The event is free, except for the teas, which are only $10/person. For tea reservations, call (423) 628-1282.

  1. It sounds like fun except for the tea and thus, a free event. I'm sure many will enjoy the tea. I'm just not one to sit down to a full table with a room full of ladies chattering away.
    Your community is really happening Jim! Seriously.

    1. Far away? We're just over the mountain, Vicki.

    1. You're going to have to move to Tennessee, Christine. You know your heart's here.
