In the summer of 2016, Mossy Creek Foundation was awarded a $5,000 Creative Placemaking grant from the Tennessee Arts Commission to create a sculptural train for the new festival park.

The Creative Placemaking grant made it possible to provide the key element of the children's play space at Mossy Creek Station—the Mossy Creek Express. With its child-size scale and a bell that rings, there's a lot of memory-making going on! A big thanks to the Tennessee Arts Commission and local artist, John Barnhill.
