Postponed — Sonker Festival

1 p.m. - 5 p.m.

Due to the weather forecast for Saturday, Oct. 1, 2022, the Sonker Festival has been postponed. A new date should be announced soon.


Celebrate Surry County's tastiest treat at the annual Sonker Festival. Devotees of this decadent dessert gather to share family recipes and sample different flavors. The cobbler-like confection is unique to Surry County and even has its own trail.

The event — presented by the Surry County Historical Society — takes place on the grounds of the stately Edwards-Franklin House. Old-time and bluegrass music and flat-foot dancing add to the festivities.

Admission is free with a nominal fee for sonker and beverages.
