“`The annual Mayberry Days is a festival with activities and events for fans who long for days when life was simple and the sheriff didn’t carry a pistol. Drink a bottle of soda pop, play a game of checkers and enjoy local bands playing tunes that were heard on The Andy Griffith Show. The festival takes place September 19th-24th.

“`From the first swing at The Emmett Golf Tourney on Thursday and chomping on a barbecue sandwich, to crooning a song at the Blackmon Amphitheatre on Sunday morning. The Surry Arts Council and the City of Mount Airy welcomes people of all ages, and from all around the world, to Mayberry Days. Make plans to attend this family friendly festival.

“`Mayberry Days takes place around Mount Airy with Andy Griffith Museum TheatreAndy Griffith PlayhouseHistoric Earle Theatre, and Blackmon Amphitheatre being the hubs of activity. Everything is within walking distance; so, wear comfortable shoes and clothes (the festival goes on, rain or shine). There is free parking in downtown municipal lots. Most events are scheduled for minimal overlap where you can enjoy nearly everything.

“`There is so much to do during the festival with all types of shows, a parade, special guests, contests, a silent auction full of unique Mayberry items, food, and games… Something for the entire family! Plus, take time to slow down and enjoy what Mayberry means to you.

“`Guests scheduled to appear:  Betty Lynn, Ronnie Schell, Maggie Peterson, Rodney Dilolard, Margaret Kerry, Ronnie Dapo, and others.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
