The 13th Annual Union County Heritage Festival "Come Here, Come Home", with over 5,000 in attendance, was a great success and had something for everyone. The festival included various activities and vendors at Wilson Park, student and fine art shows at the Historic Snodderly House, a photography show at the Chamber of Commerce, and a quilt and author’s show at the museum.
It's almost that time of year again, time for folks to get together in Maynardville for good food, good company, good music and plenty of old-time pass-times at the Union County Heritage Festival, to be held Saturday, Oct. 7.
This is the festival's 13th year, and festival president Marilyn Toppins has been involved in some capacity, from stage management to parking, for 12 of those years. This is her third year as president, and she remembers how the festival got its start.
