James Monroe's Highland Holds Virginia Folklife Apprenticeship Showcase
ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (WVIR) - Hundreds of people visited James Monroe's Highland in Albemarle County on Sunday to celebrate Folklife in Virginia.
The Virginia Folklife Apprenticeship Showcase highlighted musicians, dancers, food, and artists from around the commonwealth. Highland and the Virginia Humanities is working to educate people about the different cultural backgrounds that exist across Virginia.
"The showcase, for me, is an opportunity for people to really understand the depth of the humanities around them, to understand folk life, what is art, what are the values and traditions of people around us,” said Sara Bon-Harper, executive director of James Monroe's Highland.
People also got the chance to make crafts from different vendors.
