Bakersville, North Carolina

Bakersville NC, founded in the mid 1800's and incorporated in 1870, is the home of the famous North Carolina Rhododendron Festival held every spring during the height of the blooming season. The county seat of Mitchell County, Bakersville still retains the charm of a small mountain community, and is a convenient jumping-off point to explore the surrounding mountains. Every spring the Bakersville Creek Walk Arts Festival is held along the banks of Cane Creek, with over 50 artists and crafters displaying their work. Bakersville also has two farmer's markets open every Saturday morning -the Bakersville Farmer's Market and the Community Market held at the Creek Walk pavilion.
