Event Watch: Montford Music and Arts Festivals

Montford Music and Arts Festivals

As spring sweeps the mountains and valleys in Western North Carolina, Asheville comes alive with the sweet sounds of local music and the bright colors of local art. One of our favorite neighborhood events, The Montford Music and Art Festival, is a perfect example of how good spring looks on Asheville. Slated to take place on May 20th this year, the MMAF is a must-attend event. Read on for more information about this awesome neighborhood block party.
Where, When, What
2017 marks the 14th year of the Montford Music and Arts Festival. As Asheville's largest single day neighborhood street festival, the MMAF enjoys quite a bit of anticipatory excitement. Each year, hundreds of visitors and locals alike return to the Historic neighborhood - lined with Victorian Arts and Crafts homes - to experience the music, the local food, and the impressive art. 
The Festival will take place this year on Saturday, May 20th, and it will run from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM. This amazing event is free to attend, so be sure to bring the kids and head over to Asheville's most charming neighborhood to experience what it's like to live like an Ashevillean!
