Uncle Dave Macon Days began as an afternoon banjo pickin' contest in front of the Rutherford County courthouse. It was started by the late pharmacist Jesse Messick and David "Ramsey" Macon, a grandson of Uncle Dave.

Dancin' Dan the Banjo Man and his wife Frankie Henley traveled from Mississippi for Uncle Dave Macon Days. Frankie told us that the event is all about music and you will find people pickin' banjo under shade trees and by the stream at Cannonsburgh Village...
