Appstate’s legendary summer festival, An Appalachian Summer Festival, which runs the entire month of July, began on June 27th and offers some unique shows during its kickoff week. On June 27th the festival was on the move when patrons visited Greensboro’s Triad theatre for a showing of the new play Providence Gap; however, it will return home for the July 1st show which features artists Janis Ian and Karla Bonoff. Ian is a Grammy award winning singer and songwriter and Karla Bonoff is a chart topper in her own right; we anticipate a fantastic show from these two amazingly talented women. Friday, July 2, the Turchin Center for the Visual Arts will host its Summer Exhibition Celebration from 7 to 9 p.m.; it is one of three major receptions that they host each year. Of course, during this festival there are daily workshops and seminars scheduled as well. Check out views of the downtown area of Boone and the beautiful Appstate NC Campus by clicking to the Boone Web Cam that is located near Howard’s Knob Overlook.
Eagles Nest’s First Annual Synergy on the Mountain will take place over the July 2-4th holiday period. One of the largest and most anticipated of the area’s annual extravaganzas, this event is sure to be a big hit.
