In light of the current public health crisis and with the best interests of our community and region in mind, the Wise Business Association has decided to cancel the 42nd annual Wise County Famous Fall Fling scheduled for this year.

Due to the unique nature of this event bringing thousands together from across the region to the heart of Wise County—as well as bringing together our business community, schools, clubs, civic organizations, and churches—we could not in good conscience put our community at risk by holding the festival. Though difficult, we stand by our decision, as we hope it will go a long way toward contributing to the ultimate safety of the residents of Wise County and the greater region.

Thank You for a Successful 41st Annual Wise County Famous Fall Fling

October 12th-13th, 2019  

Courthouse Mall Wise, Virginia


Nestled in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains, and on the Crooked Road, Virginia’s Heritage Music Trail, Wise is “the place to be” during the second weekend each October.

Held downtown in Wise and on the lawn of the historic courthouse while fall color is at its peak, the event features over 125 vendors selling crafts, food, jewelry, and more. Live traditional music ranging from banjos to bagpipes is played at Big Glades Square on Main Street. The Fall Fling also features essay, photo and art contests, a 5K race, a great Kids Korner, and once again this year, the Anything Apples Contest.

Saturday: Vendors Open from 9 A.M. – 6 P.M.

Sunday: Vendors Open from 11 A.M. – 5 P.M.
