Marion is well known for hosting Main Street events! A unique, annual favorite is the WNC Bigfoot Festival held each September. Thousands of Bigfoot fans relish the idea of this hairy paradox and the City of Marion has adopted him/her as their "Official Animal."

Our outdoor events are some of the most challenging in western North Carolina, including Old Fort's Hellbender 100. This one starts and finishes at Camp Grier. Check their site for updates and registration info.

As the "age of COVID-19" continues, call us with questions, refer to event host websites for updates, and please continue to follow COVID-19 protocols. We're here. 828-668-4282
