On Saturday October 10, 9:30 AM - 5:00 PM the 32nd Annual Mountain Glory Festival will celebrate the arrival of autumn in beautiful downtown Marion, North Carolina. Applications are now being accepted.

9:30 am to 5:00 pm

The festival covers the court house lawn and 3 blocks of downtown. Browsers and shoppers looking for original handicrafts or handspun enjoyment will find plenty of choice among more than 125 artists, crafters and food booths and a variety of entertainment, from local bluegrass bands playing traditional mountain music to haunting melodies of Native American music.

Beside mainstays of music and craft, the festival offers glimpses into local and regional pastimes, such as the Mountain Glory Craft Show, foot races and 3 stages of area talent. Addie's Chapel Gospel Choir is an annual favorite. One of the most popular areas of the festival every year is the "Children's Arena" that provides hands on activities, a best dressed pet show and special entertainment for kids.
