July 18, 2014 is the big day for residents of one of the best mountain towns in Western North Carolina. The Folkmoot USA International Dance and Music Festival is the highlight of the summer and is celebrated for two whole weeks in different local mountain towns. From July 18-27th, residents living near the Blue Ridge Parkway entrance have their choice of exotic performances, parades, dance parties, arts and crafts vendors and more.
Now, on its 28th year, this festival features 200 groups from 100 different countries that perform and display their work in the towns of Asheville, Waynesville, Franklin, Burnsville, Maggie Valley, and Hendersonville.
