Celebrating Cosby
Cocke County Partnership Tourism Director Linda Lewanski is inviting the community to join rangers from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and community members to celebrate all that the Cosby community has to offer. Beginning on Friday, June 22, and continuing every Friday evening throughout the summer, "Celebrating Cosby: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow” will be presented from 7:00- 8:30 p.m. at the Amphitheater in the Cosby Campground. In case of rain, the event may be moved to the Picnic Pavilion. "Join our oldest and youngest generations as they come together in these community programs to celebrate the rich cultural and natural history of Cosby. Program topics vary ranging from mountains music, clogging, storytelling to cooking, moonshine and more," said Lewanski. On June 22, banjo musician David McClary and wife Sharon will play traditional tunes. On Friday, June 29, 2018, Mark and Digger and Friends from the Discovery Channel’s Moonshiners will talk about moonshining and promoting the craft. “We are so happy that the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is bringing this program to our Cosby Campground,” said Lewanski. “ We all know how talented our Cocke County folks are and we are delighted to be able to showcase some of them." McClary and his claw-hammered style of banjo playing is extraordinary. And Mark and Digger and Friends are set to entertain the audience with tales of their adventures. "I am sure all of the programs will be very interesting and I hope folks will come out and show their support,” added Lewanski. The programs are a partnership with Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the Cocke County Partnership. Programming for July and August will be announced at a later date.
