Pickett State Park Old Timers’ Day - Monday, September 7

The sound of fiddling and bluegrass music will fill the air at Pickett State Park in Jamestown, Tennesse during the annual Old Timers’ Day music festival. This free, day-long “jamming” festival begun in the mid-1970s features buck dancing, ballad singing, old-time fiddling, folk songs, bluegrass and much more. Bring the whole family for a day of music and fun activities! For additional information about Old Timers’ Day, please call (931) 689-3129.

Situated in a remote section of the Upper Cumberland plateau, Pickett State Park is known for its geological, botanical and scenic wonders. The park lies within the 19,200-acre Pickett State Forest and adjacent to the massive 120,000-acre Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area, both areas containing prime wilderness country. Visitors to the park can explore large rock houses, natural sandstone bridges, scenic bluffs and wild mountain streams. The park memorializes and preserves the unique work of the Civilian Conservation Corps which first developed the park.
