Growing up as the son of North Carolinians, I was always aware that “The Andy Griffith Show’s” “Mayberry” was actually Mt. Airy where they filmed the show. However, it wasn’t until I was grown and had moved back to Charlotte that I found out about “Mayberry Days” in the town.
As you can tell by the video above from 7 years ago, this annual event is fantastic. Last year’s event, tell me if you’ve heard this before, was canceled due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. However, good news! This year’s tribute to “Andy” and his friends and their town is on for September 21-26.
