The Valley Fest of Dunlap, Sequatchie County, Tennessee is a culture festival, held on the first weekend of May annually. Saturday morning opens with a 5K/1 mile run. Next is the Car Show. After that, the music begins with an opening ceremony at 1:30 P.M.
There is a large variety of food available, such as chicken, dumplings, barbecue, and the classic funnel cakes. The Valley Fest also features a carnival and “Kids’ Zone,” with inflatables, rides, and face painting. The Valley Fest has featured hang gliding in the past as well.
For the runs, it’s recommended to bring warm clothes, as the run usually starts early in the morning. This layer is tossed right before the run begins. Many people will speed along at mile 1, but this is a bad idea.
