A Main Street Community


Historic Downtown Mount Airy resides at the doorstep of the Blue Ridge Mountains where our urban living is enhanced by arts, entertainment, local wine, craft brews and our Traditional Music roots. Fostering a diverse variety of small businesses flavored with authentic dining experiences, Mount Airy is a true Southern Town with all the 
charm of Mayberry. 

COVID19 Update

Sadly, there will be no downtown trick-or-treat event this year. We hate to have to cancel, but must take necessary precautions to prevent the spread of COVID19. 

At this time (October 19, 2020), all of our downtown businesses have reopened, but with social distancing restrictions and mask-wearing requirements.  Most are offering curbside service, delivery, online shopping, etc. to get through these times.  All of our downtown restaurants have curbside pick-up available. 

PLEASE continue to support our small businesses who do so much for the community. We're all in this together!
