Westminster, SC - - - - the City of Westminster will again transform into the city of Mayberry for the 2nd Annual Mayberry Comes to Westminster  Festival April 20 and 21, 2012. 

Mayberry look-a-likes, or tribute artists as they like to be called, will be back to entertain folks during the two-day event. Headlining is David Browning, The Mayberry Deputy, who for the last 23 years has portrayed the infamous Barney Fife all over America. Along with The Mayberry Deputy will be Allan “Floyd the Barber” Newsome, Tim “Goober” Pettigrew, and Phil “Ernest T. Bass” Fox, Jeff “Howard Sprague” Branch, Kenneth “Otis Campbell” Junkin, Bob “Briscoe Darling” Munday, Christy "Andylene" McLendon and Art "Almost Andy" Fettig. Many of these talented artists appeared at the 2011 event.

Also joining the festivities will be TAGS alumni LeRoy McNees, a talented dobro guitar player. In addition to visiting with folks in the downtown Westminster area the artists will take part in a "Mayberry Moments" Concert and Talent Show late Saturday afternoon featuring Rodney Dillard and the Dillard Band. Rodney was one of the original "Darlings" on The Andy Griffith Show. Joining Rodney will be his TV sister Maggie "Charlene" Peterson who will serve as the Official Host and Parade Marshall of the two day event.

Several other venues are planned along with two Mayberry Day parades Saturday, a Cruise In featuring vintage autos and tractors from the 50’s, 60’s & early 70’s, a Miss & Mrs. Mayberry pageant, whistling and trivia contests, arts and craft displays, music and food venues, and  more.

Joyful Noise Entertainment Group is again producing the festival which in 2011 enjoyed some 8,000 visitors.

Hey Folks,

If you're gonna be at this event, post a note here so we'll know to be looking for one another. 

I'll be the one dressed up like Floyd the barber. :)
