High Country and Boone, North Carolina Area Info

Each summer the Appalachian State University Office of Cultural Affairs sponsors a month filled with visual arts, music, dance and creative workshops. The event is called An Appalachian Summer and this year's festival is scheduled for July 1 through July 30 at various venues on the ASU campus in Boone.

Ashe County and the town of West Jefferson throw one of the most unusual annual public parties in western North Carolina. The theme is Christmas and the festival is held each year in July.

The Blowing Rock Charity Horse Show is one of the oldest continuous English saddle events in the country. The show is divided into three events, each five days long starting in mid-July.

The annual music festival in Sugar Grove has turned into a two-day extravaganza of the best that bluegrass has to offer. Entertainers range from local and regional to nationally acclaimed acts. The festival, held on the grounds of the historic Cove Creek School in Sugar Grove, also features plenty of good food and local crafts and vendors.

Banner Elk Woolly Worm Festival
So since 1978, the residents of Banner Elk, NC, nestled between the Carolina's two largest ski resorts have celebrated the coming of the snow season with a Woolly Worm Festival. They set aside the third weekend in October to determine which one woolly worm will have the honor of predicting the severity of the coming winter; and they make that woolly worm earn the honor by winning heat after heat of hard-fought races - up a three-foot length of string. 

 Dancing, running, throwing large poles and bragging about one's Scottish ancestry—it's all part of a day's work at the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games and Annual Gathering of Scottish Clans.
