Fall Folklore Jamboree Saturday in Milan

Thousands are expected to celebrate the region’s heritage at the 2007 Fall Folklore Jamboree on the ground of the West Tennessee Agricultural Museum and University of Tennessee Research and Education Center at Milan.
With gates opening to the public at 9 a.m. on Oct. 20, the jamboree provides an ideal venue for more than 100 traditional folk artists, musicians and exhibitors to demonstrate skills in traditional crafts such as soap making, tatting, weaving and quilting.
Other demonstrations will include sorghum making, apple cider, grist mill and farming and logging with mules and horses.
The event will continue through the day until 4 p.m.
Admission is $4 for adults and $2 for children ages three to 12. Children two and under will be admitted free of charge, and parking is also free. Food will be available for purchase on site.
The West Tennessee Agricultural Museum will also be open during the festival. The museum is located on U.S. Hwy 70A and 79 north of Milan.
