Held in the month of May, Historic Rural Life Festival is a fun and learning experience for children as well as adults. The Tennessee Agricultural Museum conducts this annual festival with the aim of helping children learn about the past of rural Tennessee. During this two-day event, kids are given insights into how farming and other related activities were done before electricity was invented. Educational workshops such as shingle making, wood-working as well as demonstrations of butter churning, blacksmithing, weaving broaden their knowledge. Apart from learning, children can also enjoy live music, storytelling, petting farm animals and other fun activities.
