Rhododendron Festival Cancellation 2020

We are sure at this point this will not come as a surprise to most but the Roan Mountain Citizen’s Club is still sad to announce the cancellation of the 2020 Rhododendron Festival. The Citizen’s Club in conjunction with Roan Mountain State Park have been able to host this festival for many years however due to the Covid 19 Pandemic this year we don’t feel we can offer the same safe environment to have the festival. This decision had been delayed with hope that we could some how still have the festival and welcome vendors and visitors to our beautiful area to celebrate the blooming of the world’s largest natural Rhododendron Gardens. We look forward to welcoming everyone back once this has passed and we can hopefully return to somewhat of a normalize in our lives. We offer prayers for all those that have been affected and who continue to be affected. We will begin the process of working on next year’s festival so that we can welcome everyone back next year. Please continue to support local business and as always offer kindness to all you are fortunate to come into contact with.
