At the Lovill House Inn, the best Boone bed and breakfast, summertime is full of joy and warmth. The students of Appalachian State University take advantage of their summer breaks to relax in the sun or hit the rivers for some tubing. Families come into town to take their children to Tweetsie Railroad, or possibly go white water rafting for a little more adventure. For our guests planning on joining us for the end of July into August, we recommend considering attending one of the many events at the Appalachian Summer Festival.
An Appalachian Summer Festival began in 1984 as a primarily chamber music series. Celebrating it’s 33rd season this year, the festival maintains strong classical roots, but has grown to encompass numerous genres of music, theatre, dance, film, and visual arts. The University based arts program strives to promote artistic excellence and brings in some of the most respected creative and performing artists from around the globe.
This year, An Appalachian Summer Festival begins on June 27th with the Young People’s Global Film Series: My Lucky Elephant. The festival ends on August 5th. Between those dates, the festival will feature acts from Jennifer Nettles to the Charlotte Ballet to numerous chamber ensembles and classical acts. The famous Rosen Sculpture Walk will also be during the festival, on July 22nd at 10am with an awards reception following.
When you are visiting our Boone bed and breakfast, there are many options of things to do. The good news is that most of An Appalachian Summer Festival is indoors, so you can attend rain or shine.
