Todd‚ a historic village in Ashe County‚ hosts an October festival on the banks of the New River‚ which flows beside the town. Once a bustling railroad center‚ the town of Todd is now a quiet hamlet. This festival offers an old-fashioned gospel sing‚ a checkers playoff‚ a horseshoe toss‚ craft displays‚ storytelling‚ and bluegrass music all day.
Directions: From Boone‚ travel on Highway 194 North. Continue approximately 12 miles until you cross the Watauga/Ashe County Line. Take a right at the T intersection onto Todd Railroad Grade Road. The store will be on the left.
