State of the Town- Postponed
With the increase of COVID-19 cases in Watauga County recently the State of the Town event has been postponed. The presenting groups, Appalachian Regional Healthcare System, Town of Blowing, and Blowing Rock TDA agreed that a dense indoor event is not in the best interest of our community right now. More information about the postponed event will be released soon.
State of Emergency Town of Blowing Rock
A State of Emergency for the Town of Blowing Rock has been reinstated due to the recent rise in COVID-19 cases in Watauga County, which is now considered to have "substantial" transmission risk.

The Blowing Rock Town Council has decided to require Face Coverings in Town of Blowing Rock Buildings, i.e. Town Hall, Police Station, Fire Station, American Legion, etc.

The Blowing Rock Town Council is also strongly encouraging businesses to require employees and customers to wear face masks while indoors as well.

Artist in Residence
Daily art to recommend! This week's Artists in Residence are Cindy McEnery with landscape photography, and Nathan Favors, who works in local and exotic turned woods.
After retirement, Cindy McEnery committed herself to photography with classes in Raleigh and study with National Geographic photographers across the country. Cindy focuses on things around her — nature and landscapes, barns and barn quilts, sunrises and sunsets, and animals and people—with a focus on North Carolina.
Known by art collectors around the world as “The Bowlmaker,” Nathan Favors captures the natural beauty of wood and transforms it into finished creations that highlight the unique grain and natural shades of each tree species. Every creation is one of a kind.
Artists in Residence at Edgewood Cottage continues through September 19 and is open every day.
More events and updates can be found on our online calendar.
