Jimmy Smith Maranon and Street Party

  • Jimmy Smith Park Rivers Street Boone, NC 28607 USA (map)

The Town of Boone Cultural Resources Department is excited to announce the Jimmy Smith Maranon and Street Party! On Friday, October 19, 2018, we will celebrate Jimmy Smith Park and the legacy of Jimmy Smith, former Boone Town Council Member and Appalachian State Professor with the Jimmy Run! 

Run the maranon (it's like a marathon but with a lot less running!) then have fun at the free street party on S. Depot Street!

Starting at 6:00 PM, we'll have:

  • Live Music from Dave Brewer's Foscoe Four

  • Food from the Cardinal Food Truck

  • Beer from AMB, Booneshine, and Lost Province

  • Balloon Art from Twist the Balloon Man

  • And so much more!

To purchase a race packet, which includes a Jimmy Run long-sleeved t-shirt, a Jimmy Run .00333 sticker, and a maranon bib, contact Sarah Upton at
