Enjoying Fall In The Blue Ridge Mountains

While Asheville is known for its vibrant downtown scene and diverse dining options, the fall season is what really draws the crowds.  “Leaf Season”, as we call it in the mountains, is when we get to see the mountain’s true colors (no pun intended) as fall sets in and the leaves begin to change.  Our newscasters forecast the peak times travelers should be sure to visit and you can definitely see a change in the traffic patterns around here.  While you can hop onto the parkway conveniently from many areas in town, there are some outlying areas that are also worth checking out.  Here are some upcoming events in various areas where you can either be entertained or simply enjoy the beauty of fall.

Asheville, NC: A Music Lover’s Paradise

When people think of Asheville, often times they think about the mountains, the Blue Ridge Parkway or landmarks such as the Biltmore Estate… but our town is so much more than that.  Aside from the food and beer scene, Asheville has an extremely diverse music scene.  Let’s take this weekend’s events for example.

Tonight (6/10/16) River Music begins their summer events at the RiverLink Sculpture and Performance Plaza featuring the “Friends of Widespread Panic evening”.

5:30:  Randall Bramblett Band
6:45:  Jerry Joseph and The Jackmormons
8:15:  Bloodkin

RiverMusic gates will open at 5 p.m. and the good times roll until 10. RiverFest will begin at 1 p.m., about the time the Anything That Floats parade yachts will begin arriving at the river access we built, and go until 7 p.m.

Also tonight, Hickory Nut Gap is hosting a barn dance as part of their summer series where the featured band will be Cane Creek Boys and will include Square Dance style music.  There is a $5 cover charge and food will be available for purchase.

Tomorrow (6/11/16), the Steep Canyon Rangers are performing at a free event at Pack Square Park in downtown Asheville, hosted by the Asheville Downtown Association & Oskar Blues.  This show is sure to draw a large crowd, you can find the complete details here.

This is just a small snippet of what you can find in and around Asheville this weekend.  For future events, check out the following venues/calendars.
