One festival our guests always look forward to is the Sourwood Festival in Black Mountain, NC, a charming small town halfway between Asheville and the Inn on Mill Creek B&B. The Sourwood Festival has been going strong for almost 40 years, and is a highlight of summer in the mountains of western North Carolina.
The Sourwood Festival gets its name from a native tree — the Sourwood — and the honey that is produced from it. Not only does this free festival feature tons of arts and crafts, festival food, games for kids and local entertainment, but you can also buy sourwood honey and see honeybee demonstrations.
The 2015 Sourwood Festival takes place during the weekend of August 7-9. On Friday night is the Sourwood Idol talent show contest. Saturday and Sunday offer the opportunity to browse hundreds of arts and crafts vendors.
