Our Common Nature: An Appalachian Celebration

with Yo-Yo Ma & Friends
26 May
5:00 pm - 10:00 pm
World's Fair Park

Do y’all remember how HYPED we were after Big Ears Festival this year?? Well, this was the best year to be so because the brains behind Big Ears (and Yo-Yo Ma) are baaaack for an Appalachian Celebration. While there are a handful of shows and conversation to choose from in the days leading up, the culmination is happening in World’s Fair Park on May 26th. “Yo-Yo Ma will be joined by special musical guests including Rhiannon Giddens, Edgar Meyer, and Chris Thile, along with storytellers, poets, puppets, and dancers in a concert experience like none other.” Come to World’s Fair Park for a multi-faceted Appalachian celebration full of food, makers, storytellers, SQUARE DANCING (helloooo, Appalachia!😂🙌) and much, much more.
