The annual Banner Elk Herb Festival takes place at the Historic Banner Elk Elementary School. The Herb Festival offers a vast selection of herbs you're not going to find anywhere else. There will be well over 5,000 herb plants for sale, a fantastic fragrant “sea of herbs. All the herb plants are organic and planted in biodegradable pots.
About 60 vendors sell their products at the festival. In addition to herbs, arts, crafts and food items will be available. Attendees can purchase pottery, fine art, portrait photography, goat cheese and homemade herb bread to name just a few items.
A “kid zone” includes a petting zoo, old-fashioned games, spin art, a putt-putt course and a dunking booth where festivalgoers can dunk a fireman.
The festival raises money for the volunteer firefighters of Banner Elk. Attendees can purchase a Banner Elk Community Supporter Sticker for any amount, and all proceeds go to the firefighters.
The festival will also feature live music.
