The Mother Earth News Fair 
The Mother Earth News Fair is a much anticipated event here in the mountains of Western North Carolina and it's scheduled to return April 9th through 10th of this year, from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM on Saturday and from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM on Sunday. Information, Education, and Hand-Made Wares are in abundance at this enormous event that sprawls across the WNC Agriculture Center in Fletcher (adjacent to the Asheville Airport). An astounding 15,000 people are expected to attend the fair and it is by far the largest information exchange that the Asheville area will see all year. Read on for more information about this exciting event!
 
What it is
The Mother Earth News Fair is a family-oriented event that features about 200 hands-on demos and workshops. The information provided is centered mainly on green living practices, renewable energy, small scale agriculture, and natural health. Attendees at this event can walk away with information, ideas, foods and beverages, magazines and books, and fond memories of being surrounded by like minded, passionate people that create the life they want to live. Sound great? It really is!
 
What to Expect
Visitors to the event can expect to eat delicious food, drink delicious beverages, soak in fascinating information, and meet some really interesting people. Livestock demonstrations, alternative energy workshops, children's activities, and more will be around every corner. The event will be busy with the hustle and bustle of thousands of visitors from across the country, and we advise those looking to attend to visit the website to plan out your schedule before arriving.
