September 26, 2013 - September 29, 2013 - CONFIRMED!
From Mayberry Days Website:
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. There is so much to do during the festival such as watching the parade, meeting the Special Guests, laughing at Colonel Tim's Talent Time, placing the high bid at a Silent Auction or taking in all of the music at the many venues. Remember to to take time to slow down and enjoy what Mayberry means to you.
Only one word to describe Mayberry Days - BIG ! From the first "Ernest Tee" off at the golf tournament on Thursday morning to eating a barbecue sandwich to singing the last song at the Blackmon Amphitheatre during the Mayberry Days Chapel 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 the Mayberry spirit.
Mayberry Days events take place in locations around Mount Airy, with the Andy Griffith Playhouse 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 or just relax and enjoy your time at the festival.
Be sure to come visit Mount Airy during other times of the year as well. The Andy Griffith Museum is open 7 days a week and the Surry Arts Council has events going on throughout the year, so there are plenty of reasons to return.
