Woolly Worm Festival @ Historic Banner Elk School

Woolly Worm Festival @ Historic Banner Elk School | Banner Elk | North Carolina | United States

Since 1978, this quirky, world-famous festival has been used to predict the upcoming winter weather for the North Carolina High Country.

According to legend, the 13 bands on the woolly worm (woolly bear caterpillar) represent the 13 weeks of winter. Brown bands indicate a mild week, black bands indicate a cold, snowy week. Since every woolly worm has different colors, the Woolly Worm festival holds races to determine which worm is used to make the forecast. The owner of the winning worm receives $1,000!

Festival also includes about 175 craft vendors, food, live entertainment and rides. This two-day family event annually draws more than 20,000 attendees.
