An Appalachian Summer Festival (June 29th thru August 3rd 2019)

Turchin Center for the Visual Arts

Presented by Appalachian State University’s Office of Arts & Cultural Programs, this annual celebration of the performing and visual arts is held every July in venues across the university campus, and features an eclectic, diverse mix of music, dance, theatre, visual arts and film programming. An Appalachian Summer Festival began in 1984 as a chamber music series, and retains strong roots in classical music, combined with a variety of other programming geared to almost every artistic taste and preference. Celebrating its 35th season in 2019, the festival has risen in stature to become one of the nation’s most highly respected summer festivals, acclaimed for the breadth and quality of its artistic programming.
In recent years, the festival has been selected as one of the “Top 20 Events in the Southeast” by the Southeast Tourism Society. For many years, The New York Times has included An Appalachian Summer Festival in its “Summer Stages” issue, which profiles the nation’s most prominent and interesting summer arts festivals.

Village Inn Pizza Parlor

Village Inn Pizza Parlor

William “Ray” Lackey Sr. introduced Village Inn Pizza to North Carolina in 1967 when he opened his first of 12 locations right off of I-77 in Statesville. Ray always credited the success of the family operated pizza chain to our famous homemade sauce, dough, and traditional thin crust. In over 50 years, Village Inn has never deviated from the original recipes. Our dough and sauce are made in-house daily and we believe this is the foundation of any good pizza. It’s not the easiest way, or the big-chain approach, but it’s the best! Additional popular menu items include spaghetti, sandwiches, home-made soup selections, chicken wings and our 40 plus item salad bar. Village Inn also offers our all-you-can-eat pizza buffet featuring a wide selection of fresh hot pizza, salad, soup, pasta with home-made meat sauce and dessert pizza.
