The Woollyworm Festival is really cute. The Woolly Worm Festival and Valle Country Fair are on the same weekend, we usually do both in one day.

This weekend (10th and 11th) is the 34th Annual October Tour. Brief description below more information and tickets on the Historic Salisbury Foundation website here: http://www.historicsalisbury.org/octobertour.htm

------------
For the past 34 years, Salisbury has set aside the second weekend of October for a tour of eight to ten historic properties. This year's tour will begin Saturday, October 10th and concludes Sunday, October 11th. Meticulously planned and organized by the Historic Salisbury Foundation, OctoberTour stands among the elite historic home tours of North Carolina. It is a short course in architecture, history, restoration and antiques. It has also provided the foundation with funds that helped save or protect some 100 older homes from demolition.
-------------

About one block away on Saturday the Rowan Jazz and Blues Society will have the 11th Annual Blues and Jazz Festival. More information about this here:
http://bluesyandjazzy.eventbrite.com/

There is also a Friday Night Out in Historic Downtown Salisbury. More information about this here
