Celebrate what you want to see more of.
--Thomas J. Peters (b.1942)  American Author.

Did you notice I added a new tab on the website entitled "Events & More"? With all the wonderful and exciting fairs and festivals that take place throughout the year in our region, I thought it might be helpful to put together a list of some of the best and most popular events.  I'm sure I've missed some, so if you have suggestions to add, please leave a comment or send me an email. Here are some upcoming events in our region that you won't want to miss!
  • Fun Fest in Kingsport, TN is underway through July 21st -- lots of great events.
  • Liberty!, the outdoor drama celebrating the Lost State of Franklin, is being performed now through July 30th in Elizabethton, TN.
  • Bele Chere celebrates music and the arts in Asheville from July 27-29th.
  • Appalachian Fair, one of the largest, most popular festivals in our region, runs from August 20-25th in Gray, TN.
  • Virginia Highlands Festival, showcasing Appalachian arts and crafts, is July 28-August 12th.
Also included on the Events & More page is a listing of area ski resorts and hiking/biking clubs. Check it out and let me know if I've overlooked anything.
