Description

The annual Festival of the Frescoes will be held on the grounds of the historic Mission House at 120 Glendale School Rd. in Glendale Springs, NC. The event is on Saturday, Oct. 12 from 9 AM til 4 PM. The festival is sponsored by the Episcopal Parish of the Holy Communion with two churches that house world famous true frescoes by the famed artist, Ben Long, a native of NC. The fresco "The Last Supper" is housed in Holy Trinity Church, across the street from the Mission House. Admission to the Festival is free. Proceeds will be used for community outreach.
There will be arts and crafts vendors (mostly local), baked goods, a silent auction, raffle drawings, lunch, and an incredible indoor yard sale called "Granny's Attic". You can also visit the fresco and other works of art in Holy Trinity Church, guided by a docent. Don't miss this old- fashioned country fair.
