The first Friday of every month the Downtown Boone Development Association hosts a first Friday event. In the warmer months there is even live music on the lawn of the Historic Jones house.
We are situated at 3333 feet in elevation, hence our motto – “Live it Up” in downtown Boone! Other attractions in and around Boone include Horn in the West, an outdoor drama about the life of frontiersman Daniel Boone. The Blue Ridge Parkway runs all through the High Country. Access to some of the best hikes, rivers, waterfalls and views around! Enjoy cool summers and see snow in winter!
There is no lack of art and culture in Boone. The Appalachian Theatre in downtown hosts live music, theatre, comedy, dance and more. The Schaffer Center on ASU campus brings in many shows including a wonderful line up for Appalachian Summer Festival.
