Welcome to the John Blue Cotton Festival
Once again the John Blue Cotton Festival committee is preparing for a great weekend. We hope that you will make plans to join us the second weekend of October. If you will be returning to the festival, please bring a friend or family member. Each of you will have a wonderful time watching and listening to the performances on our outdoor stage, exploring the vendor area to see the beautifully displayed crafts, clothing, and artwork, or tasting the wonderful food prepared by all of the 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.
