Mission Statement

The Appalachian Community Development Association’s Organizational Mission To promote the social, educational and cultural development within the Appalachian Community of the Greater Cincinnati and the Larger Appalachian Region. We strive to improve self image and encourage the best of Appalachian values while creating understanding and appreciation of our cultural heritage.


The Appalachian Community Development Association (The A.C.D.A.) began as an outgrowth of the Junior League of Cincinnati, who sponsored the Appalachian Festival from 1970-1974. Since 1975, The A.C.D.A. has produced the Appalachian Festival. The organization's directed by an all-volunteer Board of Trustees, with at least at least 75% of those members being of Appalachian descent. The Appalachian Festival has been held annually during Mother's Day weekend attracting at least 10,000 visitors. Volunteers are needed in areas of Admission Gates, Information Booth, and Set-up.
