Generally, when a "festival" has on their billing sheet such things as "The best Country Music, Folk Artists and Entertainers in Western North Carolina" it would lead the average person to believe that there would be at least more than one music stage set out, and more than.. oh, say three vendors trying to sell anything at all - of which, as far as we saw, only two had anything that could have been considered "handmade" Folk art.

And... BBQ? How does one pathetic food truck that sells a menu of nothing but far too over-priced sandwiches suddenly turn it into a BBQ festival? Cheers, I guess. And the music was... gosh, just awful. While having a short walkabout we paused to listen to a band playing some truly wretched dirge to a crowd of a grand total of three people, one of which I'm fairly certain had managed to die of boredom and needed immediate critical care.

Maybe next time just write on the flyers, "Bunch of people camping and riding around on sports vehicles" 'cause "Smoke in the Valley" should have been named "Smoke Up Your You-Know-Where' in regards to any of the other activities that were advertised.

This is such a waste of a good facility. This has been an ongoing problem since the Pattons sold out. Was at one time the best race track in western North Carolina but has now turned into a scam. For the past five years, every event at this track has been billed as the greatest spectacle ever and when you get there it's just a gathering of a few rednecks that have no where else to go. I haven't been in a couple of years but I'm sure next year will be the same if it's under the same ownership.

Honestly calling the "clientele" that showed up there rednecks is doing the rednecks a disservice. It was a white trash festival, through and through, and frankly as a vendor that paid through PayPal we're going to be seeking a charge-back because the situation was significantly misrepresented.

What the H*LL do you people think would be going on at the redneck mud racetrack? I bet that the white sock vendor sold out in a few minutes.
