Throughout the year, musicians, actors, dancers and artists of various stripes lure thousands over the mountains for regular events ranging from Bele Chere, a summer street festival sprawling across downtown and featuring performances by local and national talent, to informal jam sessions and impromptu performances that fill Asheville’s parks and public spaces with the sound of music almost any summer night. Factor into this a full calendar of genre-specific festivals, holiday events, street parties and regular town gatherings, such as Asheville’s legendary Shindig On the Green and you’ll find a full year’s worth of extraordinary events to satisfy almost any taste.
