Free Community Event! 10 a.m. –  7:30 p.m.

The Daniel Boone Family Festival will be held in Historic Downtown Mocksville on Saturday, May 6th, from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., with entertainment on the outdoor stage continuing until  7:30 p.m. Featuring local artisans,  historical tours throughout the county, food,  live music, and a kids’ area with free inflatables and balloon artistry, there’s something for everyone at this all-day event! 

Brush up on Your Boone History Before the Festival 

Get ready for the festival by brushing up on your Daniel Boone history. Michelle DeLapp, president of the Wachovia Historical Society, will make a presentation on Boone’s life – including before and after his time in Davie County – at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 27, in the history room at the Davie County Public Library on North Main Street in Mocksville.  Visitors are welcome to the meeting, sponsored by the Davie Historical and Genealogical Society.

Retrace the Steps of Daniel Boone, the Revolutionary War, Historic Homes, and More!

Daniel Boone spent nearly 25 years in the Yadkin Valley area, and two of the three tours revolve around landmarks associated with the Boone clan. The big attraction for Boone buffs are the tours that run at 10:15 a.m., and 12:30 p.m., and again at 2:15 p.m. Tours are $5 and are provided by bus or van.

These tours include stops at historic Joppa Cemetery, where Daniel’s parents Squire and Sarah Boone, and his brother Israel are buried (Israel’s grave is the oldest in the cemetery).;  the Boone Tract at Bear Creek, a 640-acre parcel of land granted to Squire Boone in 1753 and later sold to his son Daniel; the Daniel Boone Marker in Farmington; and nearby Pudding Ridge, where General Cornwallis crossed Dutchman Creek in pursuit of Nathanael Greene (Cornwallis named the area for the thick mud in the area his troops had to march through).

A tour departing at 11:45 a.m. also visits Joppa Cemetery, Bear Creek, and the Boone Tract,  but adds tours of the Jesse A. Clement House (built in1828) and Historic Center Arbor, constructed as a site for “camp meetings” during the Third Great Awakening in 1876.
