Attention Members: Due to COVID-19 concerns, the remaining 2020 After Hours events have been canceled.

*Hours subject to change based upon volunteer availability.
The Banner Elk Chamber of Commerce has decided to cancel the first three Thursday night concerts (event dates: June 25, July 2, and July 9). We hope that the remainder of the concert season will go on as scheduled. However, the decision to proceed with the remaining concerts has not yet been made. Like everyone else, we are waiting to see how the reopening of Avery County evolves. It is virtually impossible to maintain social distancing at our current concert location (Tate-Evans Park) and accommodate the expected number of concert spectators that we typically have at our Thursday night concerts. The Chamber wants to be a responsible participant in the reopening of Avery County and will follow reopening guidelines.
The June 2020 After Hours event is canceled. Decisions regarding events further out will be made as the time nears.
To honor the graduating 5th-grade students, Banner Elk Elementary is showcasing them at the Corner on Main Park for all of the town to see. This 5th-grade class, though small in numbers, has had a large and lasting impact on the school. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, they have missed their 5th grade trip to the coast, their last field day, the faculty/5th grade dodgeball game and class promotion. By sharing the students with the town, we want to lift them up, celebrate them, and acknowledge how much we will miss them as they move into their middle school years. Congratulations and best of luck to every single one of them!
