Carmichaels & White Covered Bridge Festival

The Covered Bridge Festival, held the third week of September every year in Greene and Washington counties is one of the many great fall festivals held locally.

Each bridge had its own unique celebration, but at all of them you could find local artisans, arts & crafts, great homemade foods, live entertainment, demonstrations, horse-drawn wagon rides, and even a Civil War re-enactment or two.
