Citizens’ Sentiments


What events would you like to see in the area to draw visitors and provide entertainment for locals as well?

Matt Miller (Boonville) “The outdoor heritage we have here is a big draw. We have to appeal to a millennial audience so biking events, especially mountain biking or Geocaching, especially with the trails.”


Robin Chandler (Thurmond) “I love music, any kind of music. I’d like to see some performers making music. Merlefest is a really big draw.”


Dale Badgett (Dobson) “First of all, this Explore Elkin event was real exciting because of the events they are talking about. I’m not a big music person, but like Brewfest, things that get people together to have fun. Not a certain type of event, just get people together.”


Kevin Hege (Elkin) “More music. Music every weekend.”
