Parkway Playhouse Presents Godspell @ Parkway Playhouse
Jul 28 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
Parkway Playhouse Presents Godspell @ Parkway Playhouse | Burnsville | North Carolina | United States

In Godspell, a small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques, and a hefty dose of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus’ life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus’ messages of kindness, tolerance, and love come vibrantly to life.

Mount Mitchell Crafts Fair @ Burnsville Town Square
Aug 3 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
Mount Mitchell Crafts Fair @ Burnsville Town Square | Burnsville | North Carolina | United States

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.

Burnsville-Yancey Chamber

About The New Chamber Website

The new Chamber website was built by Roan Mitchell, a local partnership between David Biddix and Chanse Simpson. Chanse designed and created the webpages and took 90 percent of the photos on the site. David built the directories, calendars, and individual member profiles as well as handing webmaster duties and all technical aspects of transitioning to the new site. The Chamber logo of Otway Burns with the wind at his back was created by Chad Fox. The drone photos of Burnsville Town Square and Mount Mitchell were taken by Sam Dean. Contributing photographers to the website include Britt Kaufmann and Denise Cook. Roan Mitchell extends a very special thanks to Chamber Director Ginger Johnson, Member Services Coordinator Jaime Duvall and Chamber Board Members, and a heartfelt appreciation to all the people of Burnsville & Yancey County who helped us create this website. Thank you.
