NV Annual Scopes Monkey Trial & Festival

Music ~ Craft Vendors ~ Live Courthouse Re-enactment

Enjoy the Festival and see “The World’s Most Famous Court Trial” re-enactment brought to life in the courtroom where Clarence Darrow and William Jennings Bryan battled in 1925. John Scopes, a high school teacher, was accused of violating Tennessee’s Butler Act which made it unlawful to teach human evolution in any state-funded school. This fact-based dramatization tells the story of how a little town caught the attention of the world and made history – a history that is as current as today’s headlines.
