Mount Airy, NC
About the Event:
Mayberry Days is a festival for the whole family with activities and events for the fans who long for the days when life was simple and the sheriff didn’t carry a gun. Enjoy a bottle of pop while playing checkers, relax to music from many local bands playing the same songs that Andy grew up with and performed on The Andy Griffith Show.
Only one word to describe Mayberry Days – BIG ! From the first swing at the “The Emmett” golf tournament on Thursday morning to eating a barbecue sandwich to singing the last song at the Blackmon Amphitheatre on Sunday morning, it’s big! The Surry Arts Council and City of Mount Airy welcomes fans of all ages and from all around the world to Mayberry Days. Make plans now to attend this family friendly festival and enjoy four full days of Mayberry spirit.
There is so much to do during the festival with all types of shows, a parade, Special Guests, contests, a silent auction full of unique Mayberry items, food, and games. Something for the entire family! Enjoy it all, but remember to to take time to slow down and enjoy what Mayberry means to you.
Mayberry Days events take place in locations around Mount Airy, with the Andy Griffith Playhouse, the Historic Earle Theatre, Andy Griffith Museum Theatre and Blackmon Amphitheatre being the hubs of activity. Most everything is within walking distance, so be sure to wear comfortable shoes and clothes (the festival goes on, rain or shine). There is free parking in the numerous municipal lots downtown. Events are scheduled for minimal overlap where you can enjoy nearly everything.
Guests scheduled to appear include: Betty Lynn, Ronnie Schell, Maggie Peterson, Rodney Dilolard, Margaret Kerry, Ronnie Dapo, and others.
