Mountain Fair Woodsplitting and Pie contests arose in the mid/late 70s, full of intrigue and drama and inspiring rabid devotion. Humorous reports on pie and the 2011 Women's Woodsplitting contest, said to be the most entertaining in the Fair's history, will astonish and delight.
KDNK and Carbondale Arts have partnered to create a podcast about Mountain Fair. As the 50th year of the Fair approached, Carbondale Arts realized the need to honor, celebrate and preserve the history of this beloved event. The podcast airs on KDNK on Tuesdays at 4:00pm, leading up to the Fair with additional episodes on Friday 7/16 at 4:00pm and Sunday 7/18 at 7:00pm for two full hours of Mountain Fair music! As always KDNK will air Mountain Fair live throughout the whole weekend 7/23, 7/24 and 7/25!
