East Tennessee Realty Group, LLC in conjunction with non-profit organization, Friends of Wears Valley hosted the first annual Wears Valley OktoberFest on October 25,2008.
The one day event was a total success with over 3,000 visitors and raised $2,200 to benefit both Wearwood Elementary School and Wears Valley Fire Department. $1,100 was donated to each recipient to buy needed equipment at the fire department and needed supplies for the school.
Fun was had by all with the "Days Gone By" games, various crafters, live music, fodd, and even a greased pig race.
Plans are already underway for next years event which is planned to be a 2 day event with event more vendors and crafters.
We will keep everyone posted as plans come together for next year.
