Event description

Description

Foxfire Summer Heritage Days is a Heritage Skills event for children and/or families to have a hands-on experience with crafts such as blacksmithing, ropemaking, animal tracking, native plant identificaiton and much more. Kids and families can attend one day for $40/person or choose to attend both days at a discounted rate of $35/day ($70/person).

It's exciting to see so many adults signing up and enjoying these special days as well. What started out for children has grown and blossomed into a great memory maker for dating couples, vacationing friends, grands and their grandkids.

We are looking forward to seeing our returning friends and making new ones this summer.
