Nestled in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains, and on the Crooked Road, Virginia’s Heritage Music Trail, Wise is “the place to be” during the second weekend each October.
Held downtown in Wise and on the lawn of the historic courthouse while fall color is at its peak, the event features over 125 vendors selling crafts, food, jewelry, and more. Live traditional music ranging from banjos to bagpipes is played at Big Glades Square on Main Street.
Join us for some killer BBQ in downtown Wise, VA. Chillin n Grillin has something for everyone to enjoy. There are activities that are focused on children in the Kid’s Corner like face painting, carnival games, and fire truck rides. There is a Cornhole Tournament for people to compete in for prizes. We have a food court stocked with regular festival fair and, of course, plenty of barbecue!
