2020 Mountain Heritage Festival Cancelled
In response to directives from NC Governor Roy Cooper and growing concerns about the spread and resurgence of the COVID-19; and not knowing what mass gathering mandates will be in place in September, we have made the very difficult choice to cancel the 2020 Mountain Heritage Festival in Sparta. There is an enormous amount of planning involved for any festival this size, and with so many unknowns, we feel that we simply cannot move forward. While this decision is extremely disappointing for all of us, we fully support the directive from our local health department, state, and county officials. The health, safety, and well-being of all involved with the Mountain Heritage Festival is, and always will be, our primary concern.
Mark your calendars for September 18th for the 2021 Mountain Heritage Festival. Next year's festival will be held in our BRAND NEW downtown Sparta, and we will work diligently to make sure next years festival returns even stronger!
Sponsorship is a great way to advertise your
business, but where does your money go?
Funds raised and donated of the Alleghany Chamber of Commerce is support or sponsorship of the Mountain Heritage Festival go into paying for the advertising of the event as well as the festival entertainment.
