I’d like to say thank you for the support the community gives to MerleFest. I receive many comments every year from fans about the wonderful hospitality they receive while visiting our area.
That is what makes MerleFest a one of a kind event and we are blessed to have it here in our own backyard.
Over 4,000 volunteers work at MerleFest before, during and after the festival and a large majority are from Wilkes County. Over 70 local community and civic groups provide services that make the festival possible and benefit financially from their participation.
Many agencies give their time and resources to preserve and protect this event.
Many sponsors, including our presenting sponsor, Window World, are from this area.
MerleFest remains one of the premier music festivals in the world, and most importantly, one of the best events in our area because of the generous and consistent community support you offer.
Thank you again for your support.
festival director, MerleFest, Wilkes Community College,
