Greater LA Festival

As the summer winds down, the festival season in Ashe County gets ready for its second wind. There are events planned in September and October to showcase the county’s heritage through music and craftsmanship. 

First up is the Greater L.A. Festival which gathers a big crowd every year on the second Friday and Saturday of September. Live gospel and folk music, fun activities for the kids including face painting, hay rides, and inflatable attractions along with great food and fellowship make for a great weekend outing for the whole family. Some 2,000 attendees are expected. The festival takes place at the American Legion Ball Field in Lansing on NC 194N just below the old school. Vendors and crafts will be set up both days from 10.00 a.m. to 5 p.m. Activities those days include hay rides, children’s activities, apple butter demonstration (and you will want to purchase some of the results), along with barbecue chicken, hamburgers and hotdogs, and funnel cakes.
