Event Watch: Asheville Art in the Park

Asheville Art in the Park: A Showcase of Regional Work
Part of what makes Asheville such an amazing city is the art that is produced here. Our local artists are some of the best in the country, and the work they produce is a reflection of their unique and immense talents. Events that showcase this quality abound - particularly during the warm months. A repeating event that takes place in the heart of Downtown Asheville is Asheville Art in the Park, and it is a wonderful way to become familiar with the artistic wizards in our fine city. Read on for more information about this great event!
What to Expect
Asheville Art in the Park is essentially a street festival where the name of the game is local art. Dozens of regional artists set up tables showing their work and offering it for sale. You can expect to meet the talented individuals behind the work, talk with them about their process, and leave with a one-of-a-kind piece. Whether you're looking for fine wood working, jewelry, glass work, metal work, fabric arts, or ceramics, Art in the Park has you covered.
