Be Thankful for November

For our charming town, true holiday spirit is about bringing the community together, to share some memories, and make new ones. The Downtown Mount Airy has seven restaurant/cafes and over 18 retail businesses, to keep you busy. And that's just downtown!  Don't forget all our wonderful small businesses who rely on your support to continue operation. New this year, the Town is featuring a contest where you could win $1000 just by shopping right here at home on Small Business Saturday! Please consider Mount Airy next time you need to find that special gift for someone. You can find all of happenings around town by going to and viewing the calendar.  Hope you have a wonderful November!
