Welcome to the John Blue Cotton Festival
We hope that you are planning to join us at this year's festival. Each of you will have a wonderful time, enjoying the beautiful weather, talking with friends and family, and relaxing at our outdoor stage as you watch and listen to the talented performers. Hopefully, you will also get the chance to explore the vendor area to see the beautifully displayed crafts, clothing, and artwork, and to taste the wonderful food prepared by the many food vendors. It will be a great weekend for everyone who comes out to enjoy the largest festival in Scotland County!
We look forward to seeing you at the 2013 event.
