The Urban Appalachian Community Coalition partners with other organizations and venues to present arts programs that educate and entertain while celebrating the rich culture of Appalachians in the greater Cincinnati area. During the 2018 Appalachian Studies Confererence we hosted a myriad of cultural programs; expect some of these to be replicated in the months and years to come. UACC’s current cultural programs include:
Urban Appalachian Literary Salons: A quarterly series held at Lydia’s on Ludlow in Clifton, bringing urban Appalachian literary artists to the attention of our community, and using their work as a springboard for engagement around Appalachian culture and identity.
Ringin’ in An Appalachian New Year: An annual celebration held noon- 5 pm the Sunday of the Martin Luther King Day Weekend, Ringin’ includes a potluck dinner, music, square dancing and more.
Lower Price Hill Community Festival: An annual celebration of Appalachian Music held in Lower Price Hill in May.
