Art and Culture in the Yadkin Valley

Reeves Theater / Cafe

While the Yadkin Valley isn’t as well-known as Napa, Sonoma, or the Willamette Valley, what the Yadkin lacks in popularity it rectifies with an abundance of experiences for both residents and visitors. Whether you have a hankering for art and culture, museums, and history, music and theatre or entertainment and festivals, the Yadkin Valley is ready and able to provide you with a long list of cultural things to see and do.

No better way to cut yourself a slice of Americana than go to the Andy Griffith Museum in Mount Airy. The museum houses the world's most extensive collection of Andy Griffith. And while you’re in Mount Airy, Andy’s hometown, visit The EARLE, home of the Old-Time Music Heritage Hall that preserves, promotes, and protects the area’s musical legacy. Or visit the Mount Airy Museum of Regional History which collects, preserves and interprets the natural, historical, and artistic heritage of the region.

Winston-Salem and the neighboring towns are rich in history and culture. Winston-Salem is called the City of Arts & Innovation because it was the first city in the entire country to establish an arts council. Also, Winston-Salem is home to the acclaimed University of North Carolina School of the Arts.

While in Winston visit the Reynolda House Museum which displays a premier collection of American art ranging from the colonial period to the present. Or, while in the Historic Reynolda District, visit Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art and engage in diverse perspectives in visual art, music, dance, theater, and education.

History buff? Visit Old Salem and see what 19th-century living was like at. This historic district features a living history museum that interprets the restored Moravian community and showcases the culture of the Moravian. Or visit Horne Creek Farm where visitors experience farm life in North Carolina's northwestern Piedmont circa 1900. Also visit, the Historic Bethabara Park. The National Historic Landmark is home to the oldest medicinal garden and oldest documented community garden in the country.

NASCAR/ racing Fan? Visit the Richard Childress Racing Museum, or the Winston Cup Museum. Experience the nostalgia of stock car racing history! Whether you’re a “seasoned” racing enthusiast or a “rookie” NASCAR fan, there’s something for everyone to see, do and enjoy…

Need something to do with the kids? Visit the Kaleideum Museum. The mission of Kaleideum is to inspire wonder, curiosity, and lifelong learning in our children and community through interactive play and discovery.
