Mush, Music and Mutts- Shelby's Fall Liver Mush Festival -  Kicks off Friday October 20th with the NC Brew Fest Chili Cook-Off.  Then on Saturday, October 21th, 2017 it's festival time in Uptown Shelby. Mush, Music and Mutts will mark the wonders of fall in Shelby. Join in the fun with a traditional food festival that has something for everyone. Of course there is Liver Mush to sample, with a variety of preparations and choices. There is a fall festival of children's activities on the Court Square with Uptown Shelby Association and volunteers offering craft and fun activities for the kids. What would a festival be without many inflatables for the kids to enjoy. Pet owners will appreciate the Pet Festival on Warren Street, with booths and educational offerings for pets and their humans, sponsored by RollOver Pets. Don't miss the Pet Parade,  Pet Costume Contest and the K-9 unit demonstration.  You can shop the Foothills Farmers Market at the City Pavilion on Marion Street like every Saturday. Mush Music and Mutts will present two outdoor stages with a wide array of musical entertainment. The Little Miss Liver Mush Pageant  will crown a queen again this year.  Many other groups will be participating in the festival to make this a fun and exciting day. Uptown restaurants are ready for the crowds and will feature at least one Liver Mush special dish, and other great specials on this day.
