Don’t miss the Mill Around the Village Festival!
Swannanoa’s very first community wide street festival!
On Saturday, September 8, from 2:00-6:00pm everyone in the Swannanoa Valley will come together in the historic downtown area of Swannanoa (where Park St. meets the railroad tracks) to celebrate Swannanoa’s rich history and exciting future. Come hear live music by the local bands Desperado, Victory 5, and Circle D Bluegrass. Bring a chair, enjoy the music, and kick up your heels for some old time dancing.
The festival will also feature food from local Swannanoa eateries including beans, cornbread, and ice cream from the Breakfast Shoppe, barbeque from Okey Dokey’s Smokehouse, delicious pizza from Athens Pizza, fine coffee and delectable desserts from Moments Café, soft serve ice cream and hot dogs from the Dog House Dairy Bar, tenderloin biscuits by Frank Blankenship, and ribeye sandwiches and cobbler from Fox Family Restaurant. All food will be sold for $1.00 or less, a great way to tour Swannanoa’s eating establishments all in one afternoon. Festival goers will also be able to browse the more than 30 arts & crafts, business, and information booths.
