On Friday, Dec. 4 through Sunday, Dec. 6, Hindman Settlement School will host Dumplin’s and Dancin’, a heritage food and square dance weekend. The event will be held in the May Stone Building on Hindman Settlement’s main campus.
Some of the topics covered are dumplings, cured hams, fermenting and local heirloom vegetable varieties.
There will also be dance workshops focusing on traditional regional square dances; the history of southern square dancing; Appalachian flatfoot dancing; and a square dance open mic.
In addition to workshops, there will be a separate “Feast” supper on Saturday, Dec. 5, prepared by awardwinning guest Chef Ouita Michel, from Midway.
There is a charge for workshops and the feast, but the evening square dances on Friday and Saturday are free and open to the public.
