Asheville’s Summertime Downtown Fun Walking Distance from our Asheville Bed and Breakfast

July 15th, 2010 by stacy

Summertime in Asheville, NC means guests at this Asheville Inn don’t have to look or walk far.  Every Saturday starting July 3 through September 4th Shindig on the Green takes center court in the heart of downtown. The Shindig features Appalachian Bluegrass music, local and regional talent and great food. After a four-year relocation to make way for renovations, Shindig on the Green returns to its original location in the heart of downtown Asheville at the new Pack Square Park’s Roger McGuire Green. The stage shows will take place on the new Bascom Lamar Lunsford stage, named for the founder of the Mountain Dance and Folk Festival, the nation’s longest running folk festival. And best yet, it’s also free. Bring your instruments, families, friends, lawn chairs and blankets and join in for good times at the new Bascom Lamar Lunsford Stage.  Locals, visitors and guests of this Asheville bed and Breakfast alike come together downtown around sundown, or at 7:00pm for those who wear a watch, until 10:00p.m.  Come experience the beautiful music and dance traditions of Southern Appalachia on a summer evening in the mountains.

Another notable FREE summertime favorite is Downtown after Five. Every 3rd Friday of the month from May through September Asheville jams downtown. A stage is erected on N. Lexington Avenue just north of  Hiawassee and south of the the I-240 overpass between 5:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. Enjoy amazing food from local restaurants and some good brew from local breweries. Take in the music and food while meeting new and old friends. This year’s musical lineup encompasses a variety of genres.
