Andrews NC Spring Fling

A Celebration of Earth Day and Our Beautiful Mountain Community

Presented by TBD

April 24, 2020 – 9am to 1pm – Student Educational Day
April 25, 2020 – 11am to 6pm – Street Fair & Nature Expo

Andrews’ Annual Spring Fling is a great event to kick-off the season. Every year we celebrate Earth Day and our beautiful little town by sweeping out the Winter cobwebs, and opening up our downtown area to vendors and nature lovers from all over the area. Learn about gardening, butterflies, water conservation, local history, and much more – all while you shop for great stuff from numerous local vendors.

Event History

In 2015, Eve Miranda started an Earth Day Celebration at the Andrews Public Library that included Educational events for Elementary School students. The students were brought by bus to the library to learn about the environment, and how to keep the Earth safe for future generations. A poster contest was held each year, and the winning poster was used in the subsequent year’s fliers and programs.

Educational seminars included raised awareness about the forest, our rivers, lakes & streams, local wildlife, pollinators, and more. The evening ended with a “Half-K” (0.5k) Fun Run put on by Calaboose Cellars, that benefited the Hiwassee River Watershed Coalition

In 2018, Jane Blue and the Chamber of Commerce re-branded the event to “Spring Fling” and expanded it to two days, with Friday continuing as Educational Day, and Saturday becoming a Street Fair. The event was an immediate hit in the community, and with the vendors who participated.

In 2019, we added a Beer & Wine Garden, and a much larger Children’s Activity Area to Street Fair day, along with many new seminars and educational programs for Adults.
