Every May all of us fortunate enough to live in Asheville (any many visitors) look forward to enjoying and participating in a great day of awesome music and local arts while enjoying a beautiful springtime day in our Montford Historic District.
We are bed and breakfast inn owners in Montford and have had the opportunity to introduce our neighborhood and all the real musical talent and artistry displayed at this festival to guests staying at our inn. For a small Western North Carolina neighborhood, the stage rocks for hours with mountain music, folk ballads and” Party like it’s 1999″ style music for hours. Every imaginable kind of art will be available for purchase ~ locally made pottery, jewelry, textiles, swings and more.
Hungry? Not one single problem! Food trucks selling food way better than anyone could possibly expect from a food truck. Asheville has gained considerable notoriety in recent years for awesome cuisine and our food trucks have risen to the challenge offering absolutely one of the best lunches or dinners you’ll find anywhere in a restaurant or out of one.
In 2016, the festival will be held on Saturday May 21 10 a.m.-7:00 p.m. occupying the streets from W. Chestnut to Waneta. The opportunity to enjoy great, varied music, dance, dance, dance, view and purchase unique, high end art and jewelry all while enjoying the varied and gorgeous architecture of days gone by does not present itself every day. Come on out and support our musicians and local artists, dance it out and have a great Montford day.
