Ashe County Farmers Market

West Jefferson partners with the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service to provide the Farmers Market. The market shelter, located on the Backstreet in downtown West Jefferson, provides booths for local farmers and crafters to sell their products to the public.

Christmas in July

Christmas in July is our annual Independence Day weekend celebration. The downtown West Jefferson festival has its roots in the local Christmas tree industry. Thousands of local residents and visitors enjoy premiere entertainment, downtown shops, arts and crafts vendors and foods of all kinds. Ashe County Parks and Recreation provides the July 4th fireworks at Ashe Park in neighboring Jefferson.

Annual Holiday Parade

Every November since the Second World War, downtown Jefferson Avenue/Business Highway 221 has hosted a holiday parade. Local entries provide the excitement that has become a community tradition.

Ashe County Arts Council sponsors a Gallery Crawl in downtown West Jefferson. The "Crawl" is an evening of strolling among West Jefferson's many art galleries with refreshments, street entertainment and drawings. The Ashe Arts Center maintains a continuing schedule of events, including exhibitions and performances.
