Mt. Mitchell Crafts Fair this Friday and Saturday
Mt. Mitchell Crafts Fair
Burnsville, North Carolina
9am - 5pm, Friday and Saturday, August 3rd and 4th
The 62nd Annual Mount Mitchell Crafts Fair is held on the Town Square in Burnsville, NC on the first Friday and Saturday of August. With approximately 200 juried crafters, this event more than qualifies as a craft shopper’s paradise, as evidenced by the over twenty thousand people who attend this event each year searching for those special, one-of-a-kind items created by artisans from across the Blue Ridge. Shoppers browse a wide selection of items, including handmade quilts, jewelry, hand-turned wooden household items, pottery, art fabrics, rustic furniture, traditional mountain musical instruments, blacksmith creations, candles, soaps & lotions, and artwork of all mediums. Have a seat and watch as the artisans produce their craft throughout the day. Enjoy a lunch of southern favorites such as barbeque and sweet tea on the square as you listen to the live music and entertainment or perhaps try to keep up with the cloggers and other dancers as they kick up their heels on the stage. Step back into the past as you enjoy an old-fashioned Town Square event that exhibits Southern Hospitality at its best.
