BRBA Members and where they are located

Our historic downtown is full of quaint shops, crafts artisans, fine artists, local restaurateurs and micro breweries all offering their own view on what this small town is all about. Below is a list of all Blue Ridge Business Association members and a map to their location. 

 

 

 

 

 

Festivals and Events Sponsored by BRBA

 

 

Fire and Ice Chili Cook-off

is in February the Saturday of Presidents weekend.  By February cabin fever has set in so this is a perfect time to get outside, try some chili and see many beautiful ice sculptures.

 

 

Old Timers’ Parade

Originally the farmers would come to town on Saturday so the parade was always held on the Saturday closest to July 4th.  Now days we have the parade on the 4th no matter what day of the we it is.

 

Downtown is a Safe Zone

In the mountains we don’t have many street lights & homes are far apart.  Our local downtown merchants came up with the idea of having all of downtown “Safe” for our children.

 

 

Light Up Blue Ridge

is a town wide holiday festival with entertainment, Santa arriving on the train then visiting with children in the park all afternoon, evening parade and then lighting of the Great Tree at 7 pm.
