Got your tickets to the show this weekend? Why not spend the day in Burnsville Friday or Saturday and enjoy the Mt Mitchell Craft Fair? The fair closes at 5 and the shows start at 7:30. Just enough time to eat and stroll on over.
However, if you’re trying to get to the theatre on Friday or Saturday evening you may feel like you’re in a maze! The primary routes to Parkway Playhouse include roads that are closed so that crafters can set up their tents. Our advice is to leave a little early and try one of these alternate routes.
Coming from the West on 19E:
Try going all the way through town (past the McDonalds, past the Burger King) and turning left at the light after Ingles Grocery onto Pensacola Road.
When you come to the stop sign, turn left onto East Main.
Then, be on the lookout for the Engine Repair building at Long View Drive– turn right. If you take this all the way up the hill it will turn 90 degrees to the left and deposit you right on School Circle — prime parking for the theatre.
If you’re coming from the East on 19E and you don’t want to touch downtown traffic with a 10-foot pole, consider turning right (north) on 197N at United Community Bank and taking the back way to the theatre.
Turn left onto Green Mountain Drive and it’ll snake around and drop you at Parkway Playhouse’s alternate parking lot below the theatre. This drive also affords you some spectacular views!
We’re looking forward to seeing you this weekend!
