Cooleemee Textile Heritage Festival set Sept. 27

COOLEEMEE — This year, when the gates open for the 23rd Annual Textile Heritage Festival in this former cotton mill town, there will be something new to see. Gates will open at 10 a.m. and close at 4 p.m.
On Saturday, Sept. 27, the world of the South’s cotton mill people will be on display with a new museum exhibit. “This is a way of life that has now vanished,” says historian Jim Rumley. “It once formed a huge corridor that stretched through the Carolinas from Virginia to Alabama. Cooleemee is determined that this unique people and culture will not be forgotten,” Rumley said.
Also during the festival held on the grounds of the Zachary House, the Carolina Corn Bread Contest is looking for the best bakers around. There is no fee to enter, but those desiring to have their corn bread judged and win the first place prize of $100 (second place, $50), must be registered.
The festival will feature music, food, children’s activities and more. Crafters are encouraged to come and sell their wares Booths are $35.
To register for the Carolina Corn Bread Contest or for a craft booth, please call (336) 284-6040 or come by the Zachary House at 131 Church St., Cooleemee.
