The Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina invite you to take part in the many local events happening in and around our area throughout the year. From live music performances to farmers markets and festivals, there is always something to explore or experience in one of our communities. Create your own unique souvenir at a hands-on art workshop, see history come alive at a local historic attraction or push your abilities to the limit at an annual ultramarathon trail race.
Don’t miss signature Blue Ridge events like April’s Hellbender 100, May’s WNC Bigfoot Festival or October’s Morning Glory Festival. And look for special celebrations at Fourth of July, Christmas and New Year’s Eve.
Dates, times, locations and details are always subject to change, and many event organizers are making adjustments to maintain safety during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Please contact organizers for the most up-to-date information.
