Things To Do in the Mountains




Just a reminder that the Appalachian Lifestyle Celebration comes to Waynesville, NC on Saturday, June 14th from 10am - 5pm. The main street through Waynesville, appropriately named Main Street, will be closed off to through traffic and vendors of all kinds will take over the streets!

Appalachian Lifestyle Celebration

Saturday, June 14

Celebrating our 4th year! Heritage seeking visitors will be drawn to Main Street to see booths of traditional crafts & educational displays, observe demonstrations, and visit with the artists. Music lovers will enjoy tapping their toes to the music of banjos, fiddles & dulcimers while skilled cloggers and dancers perform. Listen to professional storytellers & more.

This is one of my favorite events in Waynesville because of the emphasis on making things the way they were made decades ago. You will get the opportunity to see craftsmen at work creating their wares from basic elements found right here in the Appalachian Mountains of western North Carolina. Most of the tools they use are also from yesteryear. These are skills handed down generation to generation within families that have been here since this land was settled.

While you are here in Waynesville experiencing this fantastic celebration of Appalachian culture, why not stay at our luxury bed and breakfast. At Brookside Mountain Mist Inn, we provide all the amenities of a luxury accommodation and add just a touch of rustic charm. We are located just off the Blue Ridge Parkway for easy access to the beauty of the surrounding mountains. You can relax in the cool evenings and watch the sun set over the Balsam Mountains from our back patio while sipping a nice wine from our well stocked wine cellar.

Come for the scenery, stay for the celebration!
