Since 1968. The Autumn Leaves Festival is held in Mt. Airy, NC each fall and showcases our rich musical heritage, such as Old-Time, Blue Grass and Gospel performed by local musicians on the downtown stage. The unique arts and crafts of more than 200 craftsmen line the streets with many demonstrating their talents and skills passed down through the generations. Then there is “Food for the Soul” – ham biscuits, collards and cornbread, barbeque, hamburgers, ground steak and more served with hospitality by our local civic and other community groups. Come check out one of the best festivals in NC!
