Fall Foodie Festivals in the Appalachian Mountains
Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) October 12, 2015
Harvest Festivals have been celebrated since man began to farm. The ancient Mesopotamians, Jews, Incas, and Chinese all celebrated the Autumn harvest. Carrying on the tradition for 39 years is rustic Toccoa, Georgia, where thousands of people come out to rejoice and howl at the harvest moon.
100 miles north of Atlanta, Toccoa is a delightful town surrounded by woodlands, colorful foothills, and panoramic state parks. It is known for tranquility, spectacular nature, and incredible Georgia mountain properties. Tucked into the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Toccoa is small-town America at its very best. And the residents there have a wonderful knack for holiday festivals.
The Toccoa Harvest Festival, which began in 1978, takes place on the first week of each November. It is a celebration of thanks for the year's healthy crops, and to hope the new year will be fertile. In Toccoa, people come from their rustic mountain homes with all sorts of homemade treats, to share their delectable recipes with neighbors, family, and friends.
The festival also hosts a number of interesting exhibits, such as a petting zoo, a classic car show, and farm and art displays. There will be music, dancing, activities for kids, and plenty of great festivities. With over 160 food and craft vendors, and so many things to do, the event draws thousands of hungry and spirited visitors.
