An Appalachian Summer Festival

Want to experience one of the finest arts festivals in the region? Check out the Appalachian Summer Festival in Boone, NC during the month of July. The festival itself is entering its twenty-second year of existence and "is emerging as one of the nation's most innovative and highly regarded regional, multidisciplinary arts festivals". Things kick off July 1st with Doc Watson and Sam Bush in concert together and continue throughout the next thirty days with theatre & dance performances, visual art galleries and more concerts from jazz, classical, rock and country musicians round out the event. A visit to Boone is a day well spent and with this smorgusboard of entertainment, a day seems like too short on time.
