Linville Heritage Festival
The first day of the 2nd annual Linville Heritage Festival will be held at Linville and Moore today to celebrate 111 years since the first train arrived at the former timber town. Today visitors can grab a map and take a self-guided history walk around the village, enjoy a BBQ breakfast at the Linville Community Hall, watch chainsaw art being created, have lunch at the Linville Hotel or the General Store & Café or order a picnic box from The Picnic Society then come to the hall to listen to famous author Everald Compton (a Linville old boy) who'll be giving an entertaining free talk from 3:00pm to 4:30pm for the first 50 people to register. This will be backed up in the evening with a concert by the well-known chamber music ensemble Angel Strings, who'll perform Vivaldi’s Four Seasons plus other repertoire ‘under the stars’ in the Linville Community Garden for an audience of 80 people (tickets are $30 and can be booked online).
