COVE LAKE Annual Louie Bluie Festival

Post  chuck on Tue Feb 14, 2012 10:28 pm

6th Annual Louie Bluie Festival on Oct. TBA
This all-day family-fun festival features three stages of music including traditional Old-time, Blues, Gospel, Mountain Jazz, and Bluegrass, plus storytelling and theater and our Kid’s Fun Zone with lots of activities for the children. High quality art and handmade crafts will be sold in the Craft Village, and a judged Art and Quilt Show will be in the Recreation Center. Regional food vendors will be serving up a mouthwatering array of authentic Southern cooking, East Tennessee style.

The Louie Bluie Festival is named in honor of Howard "Louie Bluie" Armstrong (1909-2003), a LaFollette native and internationally acclaimed string band musician who grew up in LaFollette in the 1920s and became one of the nation's finest string band musicians, as well as artist, storyteller, and writer.

A $2 per person/$5 per family donation is encouraged and funds Campbell Culture Coalition, an all-volunteer non-profit community arts organization.
