Mt. Mitchell Crafts Fair
For more than 60 years, Burnsville has hosted the Mt. Mitchell Crafts Fair on the first Friday and Saturday in August. Featuring more than 200 vendors and performers, the Crafts Fair is one of the most popular summer events in the mountains. Thousands of fairgoers enjoy live craft demonstrations, bluegrass and acoustic music, food vendors, and an unimaginable selection of one-of-a-kind, handmade arts and crafts created by artisans across the Blue Ridge and beyond.
Established in 1956, this lively Town Square event brings together mountain heritage, traditional, and contemporary offerings displayed by performers and artists of all mediums.
