The Festival of the Mountain Masters

Emily Perkins | Harlan Enterprise

The 35th Festival of the Mountain Masters returned to the Village Center Mall on Friday, drawing in hundreds of Harlan Countians and travelers to witness a magical-like venue of artists and their crafts. The made-from-scratch festival took place from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. on both Friday and Saturday allowing plenty of time for people to roam the mall and shop the many creations including: handmade brooms, baskets, chairs, paintings, shirts, treats and more. Those soaking up the vibrancy of Appalachian culture were also able to filter through a photo gallery brought to the mall from the Harlan Center, which featured local photographers such as Chris Jones and Jennifer McDaniels, while listening to local artists like PJ Helton, also pictured.
