Fall is here and winter is quickly approaching. And this is the perfect time of year to plan a mountain getaway to the mountains of North Carolina. And the towns of Cashiers, Cherokee, Dillsboro, and Sylva are ready to host you and visitors from all over at 5 festivals and events in the Jackson County towns. This area is about a three-and-a-half-hour drive from Charlotte making it the perfect spot for a fall or winter getaway. From leaf season which is a site to see anywhere in the North Carolina Mountains, to winter and the holidays and maybe even a snowfall there is something for everyone to enjoy. These 5 festivals and events take place between October and December and include fall craft festivals and holiday events across Jackson County. But even if you can't swing a trip before the holidays, perhaps pay a visit at the beginning of the year with small crowds and lower prices. And an even better chance for that snow I'm dreaming of!
