This festival might not even exist if it wasn't for the landmark Mayberry Cafe, located on the northwest corner of the historic Hendricks County Courthouse Square. This destination restaurant has become a fan favorite as people travel from all over the globe to experience this one-of-a-kind tribute.

The unique cafe has everything any Andy Griffith Show fanatic would expect from the country wallpaper to the down-home vittles that you would swear Aunt Bee made herself makes this place a fun stop for any age.

You'll also find some unexpected gems at the cafe, such as multiple televisions airing non-stop episodes of the show and even Barney Fife’s police cruiser parked out front, make it a bucket-list experience for any fan.

Of course, finding an open spot inside the Mayberry Cafe during the weekend of the festival can be quite a chore. But don't worry, the restaurant is open year-round to enjoy.
