Annual Sourwood Festival

Black Mountain's annual Sourwood Festival is always a hit with the locals and visitors alike! There's always plenty to see and do, great music and lots of fun, and of course lots of great mountain cookin'. Held each year in August, it's a time for good food, good fun and good friends. Come on over and join us, we'll be expecting you!

For the more adventurous, there's the annual Black Mountain Marathon & Mt. Mitchell Challenge in February. Glorious views and crisp, cleansing air make this an exhilarating trek!

The holidays always bring lots of festivity to Black Mountain & Swannanoa. In the Fall, there's "Fall by the Tracks," sponsored by the Old Depot Station, and of course, a "Pumpkin Festival." Winter brings a Christmas Parade, "Circle of Lights" around Lake Tomahawk (a sight to behold!) and the "Holiday Tour of Country Inns." Spring brings "Taste of Black Mountain," sponsored by the Chamber, and the Lake Eden Arts Festival, better known as LEAF. In the Summer, there's craft shows and 4th of July celebrations, and lots more fun to be found! For more information about events in the Black Mountain/Swannanoa area, see our full Events Calendar or give us a call here at the Chamber. We're looking forward to your visit!
