The fourth annual Hook, Line & Drinker Festival features fly fishing guides and fishing industry vendors, food trucks, children’s activities, music by the Carolina Soul Band, clean water, outdoor activity and wildlife advocates, and WNC craft beer vendors. The Carolina Soul Band will perform classic soul/R&B/Classic Rock/Beach hits from 3-7 p.m. New for 2020, we are excited to introduce our very own festival brew! This special seasonal craft beer is being created as we speak by our friends, neighbors and supporters at Innovation Brewing in Sylva (and Dillsboro). The festival is organized by the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce and celebrates being the home of the N.C. Trout Capital® and the WNC Fly Fishing Trail®. The event has been named one of the Top 20 events in May in the Southeast by Southeast Tourism Society.
