WEARS VALLEY, Tenn. (WVLT) - Brittany Huff and her family suffered a horrible tragedy in 2018: Huff lost her six-month-old daughter, one of three triplets, to a rare heart condition. Now, they’re using baby Bostyn’s legacy to help others.

Huff and her family have started The Bostyn Huff Spring and Fall Festivals. The events, held at Huff’s Wears Valley property, include over 40 vendors and food trucks.

The event is also aimed at raising awareness of Congenital Heart Defects (CHD), the defect that took Bostyn at six months.

“The events allow us the opportunity to share Bostyn’s name and story,” her mother told WVLT News. “We are able to connect to so many people who have lost babies and other loved ones due to heart problems.”

A portion of the October festival’s vendor proceeds will go toward providing for local children in need at Christmas.

“This Christmas, all of the children will be selected from Wearwood School, and all of the gifts will be from Bostyn and given out by her triplet brother and sister, Beau and Bray,” Huff said.

The event is set for Oct. 8, 15, 22 and 29 at 2881 Wears Valley Road in Sevierville. The event is free and will be different each Saturday. You can see a complete list of vendors here.
