26 - 27 Mt. Mitchell Crafts Fair - A Southeast Tourism Society Top 20 Event for the month of August, with approximately 200 juried crafts, the Annual Mt. Mitchell Crafts Fair more than qualifies as a craft shopper’s paradise, as evidenced by the over twenty-five 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, various types of 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.

Burnsville is located in Yancey County, NC, home of Mount Mitchell, the highest peak east of the Mississippi at an elevation of 6,684 feet. Burnsville is 20 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway and 35 miles northeast of Asheville.
