A Hammock Forum Group Hang is coming to our area June 9-11 at Blackberry Blossom Farm in Unicoi, TN!


What is a Hang?

A hang is a gathering of folks who camp with elaborate tarps and in all different kinds of hammocks who get together to share ideas and show off their hammock set ups.

There are already over 50 registered folks coming from all over the US to this hang right in our back door!


There will be a few hammock vendors there too to talk to and see what their latest designs are. There will be food, a raffle and an open pickin porch for anyone with an instrument to come & play. And activities like kayaking and hiking on Saturday too.
