Budbreak Wine & Craft Beer Festival

noon - 6 p.m.

Mount Airy's Budbreak Wine & Craft Beer Festival moves from its traditional spring date to the last Saturday in August because of Covid concerns.

The popular downtown street festival showcases a superb selection of North Carolina’s premier wineries and breweries, along with food vendors and live music on the main stage.

“We’re in the heart of the largest wine-growing area in the state; we have a strong musical heritage, and the mountains are our backdrop for it all,” says Bob Meinecke, festival director. “The festival incorporates all of those key factors for our area.”

Tickets are $20 in advance. Ticket packages, which include two tickets, lodging and transportation to/from the festival, are also available.
