About Gainesboro Poke Sallet Festival
For over three decades the streets of historic Ganiesboro Tennessee have been a buzz each Mother's Day weekend with people enjoying the events, foods, sites and music of the annual Poke Sallet Festival. The tradition continues as in 2013 The Gainesboro-Jackson County Chamber of Commerce once again is pleased to showcase the talented people and stunning natural beauty of Jackson County. Come and join us as we race terrapins and outhouses, cut logs with old time crosscut saws and of course eat plates full of the name sake our annual Spring Festival. Don't be surprised though that once you've visited Gainesboro you find yourself retuning again and again.
