The Official Fall Liver Mush Festival of North Carolina, Mush, Music and Mutts

Live music on 3 stages from 8 am – 4 pm in conjunction with our regional food favorite “Liver Mush.’’ The Earl Scruggs Center has the banjo petting zoo open with a few special guest pickers during the day.  There is even a drum circle.  In addition there is pumpkin painting, bouncy houses, arts, craft and product vendors, NC Craft beer, local wine and food vendors.  The famous Bridges BBQ, named “Best BBQ in America,” by Southern Living Magazine serves up the pork alternative for those who don’t favor liver mush. There is a pet parade, costume contest, pet trick contest and activities all day to enjoy with your furry friend.  We even have a Liver Mush Pageant! Restaurants in town are open for business along with retail stores.  Be sure and tour the Earl Scruggs Center during your visit!
