Mount-Airy is located in Surry County in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of northwestern North Carolina. This peaceful community of approximately 8,500 won the "All American City Award" in 1994. Known as the birthplace of actor Andy Griffith, it is believed by many to be the inspirational town for Griffiths popular television series, "The Andy Griffith Show." Although Mount Airy doesnt look exactly like the fictional Mayberry, it does have a "Floyds Barber Shop," "Old Mayberry Jail" and "Snappy Lunch," which is famous for its pork chop sandwiches. The community holds an annual "Mayberry Days" in September and Andy Griffiths old home place can also be visited. Mount Airy has a long history with regional music and is the home of country singer, Donna Fargo and old-time music legend, Tommy Jarrell. The town has one of the few bluegrass and old-time music radio stations in the country that has been in continuous operation since 1948. Weekly bluegrass jam sessions are held at The Andy Griffith Playhouse and an Old Time Fiddlers Convention is held annually in the town. The annual "Autumn Leaves Festival," is another special event that Mount Airy has been hosting for over forty years. Held in early October, this festival showcases local musical talent, along with an arts & crafts show, lots of good food and other entertainment. Outdoor activities in the area include canoeing the Yadkin River, hiking, mountain biking and traveling the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway.
