Loudon’s annual “Memories on Mulberry” antique show and sale will be Sept. 8 on the courthouse lawn in historic downtown Loudon.
The show is sponsored by the Loudon Merchants and Property Owners Association and features many antique booths, food and music. Take a stroll through the days of old.
“Memories on Mulberry” antique show and sale is held in conjunction with the annual Smoky Mountain FIddlers Convention. This event was started by the Loudon Rotary Club as an official event of the 1982 World’s Fair in Knoxville.
The convention has continued to grow and has become the premier bluegrass competition of the area. Bluegrass music is a unique form of music found only in the Appalachian Mountains of the South. The music blends the fiddle, guitar, banjo and mandolin into a toe-tapping form of music.
WLNT will broadcast the event live.
