ChristyFest™ is an annual festival held in Townsend, Tennessee to celebrate Christy the novel by Catherine Marshall as well as the TV series and movies. Each year cast members, producers, writers, directors and crew from both productions come to ChristyFest™ to share memories, mingle with fans and enjoy the beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains where the TV Series was filmed in Townsend, TN.
ChristyFest™ began in 1997 as a small gathering of fans sharing their love for the television show. ChristyFest™ not only focuses on the show, it pays homage to the novel and the genuine history on which it is based. In addition to this, the Festival explores related material such as mountain crafts, herbal medicines, music, history and early mountain culture. ChristyFest™ events and presentations also feature nationally known experts in a variety of subjects of interest to Christy enthusiasts.
