NC Smokies Summer Festival Update

Can you believe we are about half-way through the summer season? Boy, where did the time go?! I guess the old saying “Time flies when you’re having fun really is the case here in the NC Smokies.  Well the good news is that while summer may be inching a little closer towards the fall season each day, there is still plenty of summer festivals and events on the books here in the Haywood County.  In fact, this upcoming week kicks off one of Haywood County’s most popular signature events: Folkmoot USA – the official International Folk Festival of North Carolina.

Therefore, I think it is time for a summer festival and event update.  As you probably know Haywood County LOVES to throw a good party and we throw them all summer long with unique festivals and events. In fact, we keep the fun going well into the fall and are even known for hosting some pretty cool events right through the winter season.

In a nutshell, there is always something going on in the NC Smokies.  But enough about that!  Let’s get down to business and find the perfect event for you to enjoy on your next trip the NC Smokies.  And don’t forget to give us a call (800.334.9036) or check out our Event Calendar because we are always new events!
