Sourwood Festival

“Bee” sure to put Sourwood Festival, a fun small-town festival in Black Mountain on your calendar for Saturday, Aug. 10.

The Sourwood Festival in downtown Black Mountain celebrates our bees and local sourwood honey. It’s presented by the local Chamber of Commerce. Stroll down several streets with 200 vendors, eat festival food and listen to big variety of live music.

Since the festival is on several side streets, Black Mountain’s State Street (their Main Street) remains open, so visitors can also explore all the galleries, restaurants and stores. There will be 200 vendors along Sutton Avenue, Black Mountain Avenue and Vance Avenue include arts and crafts, local businesses, specialty items and honey.

The festival is a family-friendly event with several kid’s carnival rides and games. It’s a non-alcoholic event, but you can stop at one of the downtown pubs or restaurants for a refreshing beer.

Come out on Saturday from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m. or on and Sunday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Admission is free.
