Join us for the return of the Ava Gardner Festival featuring new exhibits, free movies, heritage tours and more! For many years, the complexity of Ava as a movie star, wife, friend and advocate for civil rights is a story that truly has not been told. The new “Ava: My Real Story” exhibit will showcase Ava’s personal side which was known well by close friends and family – as a friend she was loyal, warm, and loving, as a business woman she was direct, independent, and humble.
Area hotels are offering special rates for visitors traveling to Smithfield for the weekend. Visit the website for more details.
