Visit Downtown Blue Ridge

Throughout the year, there are plenty of events and festivals downtown, starting with Arts In The Park in the spring, and ending with Light Up Blue Ridge on the Saturday after Thanksgiving.  In July, there is the 4th of July parade, and also the Veterans Day parade in honor of our veterans.  There is also art exhibits and live music many weekends throughout the summer and fall.   Plenty to do for everyone!
