Cosby in the Park highlights the splendid spring atmosphere and presents a glimpse into the past by paying tribute to a previous way of life.  Spring time in the mountains was difficult, but strenuous chores eventually gave way to a time for relaxation, when residents passed time by making music.  Local residents also celebrated their rich Scotch-Irish heritage through traditional song and dance. The day’s events feature bluegrass performances.  In addition, there are performances of traditional Cherokee music and dance as well as a performance by the Dogwood Dulcimers.  Visitors are encouraged to bring a lunch and their own instruments and join in during the all day bluegrass “pickin’ party.” There are various craftspeople and musicians in attendance at Cosby in the Park.
