Old Timey Fall Festival @ Burnsville Town Square
Sep 28 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

The OLD TIMEY FALL FESTIVAL is held on September 28th, 2019 in Burnsville, NC. On Burnsville’s beautiful Town Square, this is a good old fashioned, “Old Timey” local Festival.  This annual event is used to invite heritage-crafters to come out and demonstrate the old timey methods of producing their crafts.  Antique tractors and cars are on display along with the local Farmer’s Market.  Music for all ages, food, and rides and games for the kids are all part of this fun, family-friendly day.  


Trick or Treat on Town Square @ Burnsville Town Square
Oct 31 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

We would like to invite you and as many groups as possible to participate in a community-wide, safe, family environment on Halloween.  From 4:00 to 6:00 pm on Tuesday, October 31, the traditional trick or treating for candy will take place at local businesses and around the square.  We would like to invite the area businesses, local non-profits, and church groups to decorate their storefronts and participate in this event. If you are a business or organization that does not have a storefront downtown, you can set up in a space on the Square. We would also like to have all types of activities for children on the Square.  If you would like to plan an activity on the Square please contact us immediately so that we can plan the appropriate spaces.  This is lots of fun for the whole family!  Let us know if you want to participate by emailing or phoning your RSVP by October 20 to the Yancey Chamber of Commerce at or 682-7413.
