The Town of Blowing Rock NC is always abuzz with Blowing Rock Events and Blowing Rock Attractions. This historic mountain village, once home to the Cherokee and Catawba Indians, now boasts 1,500 full time residents and 8,000 summer residents who have the privilege of enjoying awe-inspiring views, a pleasant climate, a wide array of outdoor activities, and an impressive selection of shopping and dining options. Something special is always going on in the Town of Blowing Rock NC, which can be viewed via the North Carolina Web Cam that is situated just above one of the busiest thoroughfares in the small town. Starting this month, one of the most popular Blowing Rock Events will begin taking place. On May 15, 2010, hundreds of eager art enthusiasts will flock to Downtown Blowing Rock for the first installment of the popular Art in the Park festival, which consists of a series of juried art and craft shows.
This will be the 48th year that Blowing Rock Art in the Park has delighted both residents and visitors with its stunning collection of local artists and craftsmen. First established in 1962, the purpose of this event is for area artisans to come together to showcase their talent. At each of the six Blowing Rock Art in the Park events slated to take place from May through October of this year, you’ll find an array of original artwork including jewelry, pottery, fiber arts, photography, paintings, glass creations, and more. Thousands of visitors come from all over the country to experience this great showcase of local talent, and craftspeople come from miles around to display their works at these popular events, each of which features the works of 90 artists.
The Blowing Rock Chamber of Commerce is responsible for orchestrating Blowing Rock Art in the Park and many of the other exciting Blowing Rock Attractions and Blowing Rock Events that take place in this charming town throughout the year. Admission to Blowing Rock Art in the Park is free of charge and shuttle services are also offered at no cost, as parking in the Town of Blowing Rock NC can be scarce. The 2010 Blowing Rock Art in the Park events are scheduled for May 15, June 12, July 17, August 14, September 11, and October 2. We hope to see you there!
