The 2024 Festival will be held the Saturday September 28 and Sunday September 29 from 10am until 5pm both days.


Since 1976 the Rugby Volunteer Rescue Squad and Fire Department, Inc. and Grayson Highlands State Park have entertained tens of thousands of people each year with their live exhibits of Appalachian culture. Step back into a simple age when horses and mules ground cane into juice to be boiled into sorghum or molasses; when apple cider was the soft drink of the time; when fresh apples were cooked in a copper kettle over an open fire all day long to render apple butter; when Saturday night was reserved for fiddling; and making music with the neighbors. Such was the lifestyle of the early Appalachian pioneers.


 Other Rugby Fire-Rescue Functions: ·       Sunrise Service - Easter Sunday  ·       Annual Fish Fry - One Saturday in May   ·       4th of July festivities - July 4th  ·  Thanksgiving Dinner Fundraiser     

All Proceeds go to the Rugby Volunteer Rescue Squad and Fire Department, Inc. for emergency equipment and training.
