The goal of the Red Boiling Springs Folk Medicine Festival is to pass on knowledge, skills, and traditions that

ensure the survival of folk activities, from: old-time medicine and natural healing arts to 

arts and crafts that demonstrate the traditional, handmade way of not only creating art 

but useful household items. 

The Folk Medicine Festival is an opportunity to encourage creative

expression and foster a sense of community.
