Montford Music and Arts Festival in Asheville

April 11th, 2012 by Stacy Shelley

The Montford Music and Arts Festival is the largest one day music and arts festival in Western North Carolina and will be in its 9th year  May 19, 2012. Head  out the door of this Asheville Inn, turn left onto Soco Street and you are there, it’s that close.

The festival has really grown  the last few years and now includes two streets in the Historic Montford District.  The homes built in Montford Most were constructed between 1890 and 1920, and include a variety of architectural influences in Asheville during the turn of the 20th century.  Any street could have a  Queen Anne, Victorian and Arts and Crafts home on it. Pinecrest Bed and Breakfast was built in 1905 and embodies a traditional tudor style architecture.

Over 100 art, crafts, food and plant vendors will be located on Montford Avenue and Soco Street.  Two stages, one on each street, will offer the perfect setting for all day fun and over 20 bands and musical acts will take the stages. The festival is an exciting way to experience one of Asheville’s most fascinating neighborhoods.

Come rain or shine and join in the fun on Saturday May 19, 2012, at 10:00am and running till 7pm. The festival is free to the public. Take in the festival while staying at this Asheville Bed and Breakfast. Reserve your room online at www.pinecrestbb.com or call 877-811-3058 to book your room.

 

 

Montford Arts Festival just a few steps away from our Asheville Bed and Breakfast

May 11th, 2011 by Stacy Shelley

Summer in Asheville is around the corner and the festival season is just weeks away.  Kick off the festival season by booking at this Asheville B & B, on Friday, May 20 through Sunday, May 22 and enjoy our historic neighborhood’s own festival — just down the street.

The Montford Music and Arts Festival (on May 21) will feature music, unique art, and great food.  The festival, now in its eighth year, will expand to two stages for the music that will combine a bit of star power with a wide diversity of styles and local talent. As is tradition with the festival, each act has ties to the Montford neighborhood.

In between the music sets, festival-goers will be entertained by “Asheville Shakesperience” (the professional touring company of the Montford Park Players), dancing from the Morris Men and Ashgrove Garland (including a Maypole celebration), and the return of the Mountain Lion Chinese Dragon dancers. There will also be surprise performers and a special guest emcee or two.

The Montford Avenue stage will feature four-time Grammy award winner David Holt and the Lightning Bolts, Free Planet Radio, Billy Jonas, Firecracker Jazz band, Westsound , Braid Stream, and Free Flow. The Soco Street stage will be dedicated to some of Asheville’s outstanding, up-and-coming, musical entertainers, including Chompin at the Bit String Band, Cobra Horse, Leigh Glass Band, Pick Your Switch, Songwriters in the Round, Paul Edelman,  Dave Desmelik, Jeff Markham, South French Broads, Two of Us, and Spicy Moustache and The Flavor Saviors.

Everything, including the music, is free . Best of all, it’s a short walk back to the comfort of your bed. For reservations at Asheville’s Pinecrest Inn Bed & Breakfast, visit www.pinecrestbb.com or call 888-811-3053.
