Saturday October 19, 2019, the 41st consecutive Valle Country Fair, the overgrown Holy Cross Episcopal Church bazaar set in the center of one of the most picturesque valleys in the North Carolina mountains, takes place in Valle Crucis. The gathering is an authentic harvest-season community celebration that revolves around quality hand-made crafts with more than 160 exhibitors, home-cooked food and mountain music. Enjoy local bluegrass and country music, many fresh foods prepared on site - homemade chili and corn muffins, apple butter, sausage sandwiches, fresh-pressed apple cider, baked goods, jams and jellies, Brunswick stew, barbecue plus more. Kids enjoy an assortment of activities such as pony rides, face painting and pumpkin bowling. Live music 9 a.m. to 4 p.m on 2 stages. Admission is free. Ample and close parking is available for $10/ car. Parking begins as early as 7:30 a.m. Please, no pets. The Church of the Holy Cross in cooperation with the Valle Crucis Conference Centers sponsors the Valle Country Fair to raise funds for those in need.
