Festival Description

The annual Uncle Dave Macon Days Festival is a summertime tradition of national championships for old-time banjo, buckdancing and clogging. It is one of the few old-time music competitions remaining in the country. About 2,000 musicians and dancers compete for a purse of more than $6,100. The festival takes place at Cannonsburgh Village at 312 S. Front St. and is a free event, although there is a small entry fee to enter the competitions. Uncle Dave Macon Days also consists of featured performers, food, arts and crafts, gospel singing and a Motorless Parade featuring mules, horses and wagons.
