The Tennessee Fall Homecoming is one of the nation's largest and most authentic music and folk festivals. Each day, all day, musicians perform on rustic outdoor stages; filling the air with the sounds of traditional mountain, folk, Bluegrass, Gospel, old-time and Americana music throughout the grounds.
The weekend includes demonstrations of pioneer skills, a large craft fair with authentic Appalachian artisans, and traditional Southern foods. The Museum offers a picturesque backdrop for this annual festival, with its dozens of historic log buildings, display halls filled with authentic artifacts, and gardens and farm animals surrounded by split-rail fences.

Redd attended the Tennessee Fall Homecoming until his health forced him from the stage. His brother Bill, who also played there every year, informed us that the very last time Redd ever sang "The Tennessee Waltz" was there at the Homecoming.
