People from all across America know that the place to be on the first Friday and Saturday in August is the charming Town Square of Burnsville. The Mt. Mitchell Crafts Fair is the oldest and largest crafts fair in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Every kind of handmade craft imaginable can be found here, whether you are looking for a quilt, jewelry from local gemstones, hand-turned wooden bowls, or pottery of every shape and size made by skilled artists. Stop by the Heritage Hollow tent to take a walk back in time. The Food Court, along with nearby restaurants, offers a wide array of delicious food all within easy walking distance. For the 4th year the Burnsville Town Center is opening its doors and offering an air conditioned oasis with clean restrooms, tables to eat your fair food and a place to relax and rest your weary feet.
