Since 1983, Charm Merchant Days has been an annual event. Each year they are held on Friday and Saturday on the second weekend of October. During the two day bargain shopping, participating merchants offer discount prices and specials to help celebrate the occasion. Since the second year of Charm Days, a great attraction is the drawing for a Grand Prize of $1000.00, sponsored by the merchants. The registration to win also includes chances for prizes from each place of business. Other activities included: a two day benefit bake sale; a flea market on Saturday; yard sales throughout the town; a school benefit including old fashioned chili and fry pies. On Friday evenings, an old time fiddling program is held. An auction with donations of items from area residents & businesses is held on Saturday.
A Wooly Worm Derby has been getting exciting attention during the past years. On Friday afternoon, the lower grade children of Charm School have been competing with their favorite caterpillar crawling up a string. Saturday morning, a horse fun show is held on the south end of town.
Since 1991, a pie contest has been held on Saturday and the pies are all sold at auction after judging.  All the money raised at the yearly auction is placed in the Charm Community Share-N-Care Fund, which is the local charity helping people in need.
The final attraction of the day on Saturday is the prize drawing of all participating merchants and the announcement of the lucky winner of the $1000.00.
