The town of Boone can have a peculiar effect on those who have been to its tranquil Appalachian hills. When a former Boone resident finds their way back to those beautiful mountains, they call it the "Boonerang" Effect.

That magnetic pull back to the town is the inspiration for the inaugural Boonerang Music and Arts Festival, featuring artists with ties to the area like Acoustic Syndicate, Town Mountain, and Melissa Reaves. Boone's downtown will transform into the festival grounds, with three separate stages hosting concerts, an art and crafts market, beer, food, and shopping all throughout the town. There will also be a fun kids zone for all the young ones to attend.

Boonerang Music & Arts Fest will take place as a part of Boone 150, the town of Boone's Sesquicentennial Celebration!
