Enjoy the Tiffany Exhibit at the Biltmore Estate this Summer through October 23, 2011. See a  remarkable collection of 45 stained glass lamps and objects created by Louis Comfort Tiffany and The Tiffany Studios. The exhibition, organized by The Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass in New York, features Tiffany’s most admired designs drawn from the natural world.

In addition to the exhibition, the talented landscape and floral designers at Biltmore are incorporating Tiffany-inspired elements throughout the gardens and in Biltmore House:

  • Dramatic 40-foot dragonflies created from flowers and foliage, resembling Tiffany’s iconic stained glass fixtures
  • Floral décor in Biltmore House inspired by Tiffany’s love of botanicals
  • Unique 24-foot “Living Wall” of flowers, foliage, and vines mimic stained glass, next to the Conservatory

This stunning exhibition is included in your estate admission. The Biltmore Legacy hosts the exhibit in the Antler Hill Village. Doors open at 11:00 a.m. and guests are encouraged to arrive early. Just one more reason to visit the Biltmore Estate this summer.

The weekend of May 27th there is not one but two fabulous festivals. Whether you’re a hardcore athlete or a newbie trying an event for the first time, the annual Mountain Sports Festival in Asheville offers something for you. From intense trail running to laid-back disc golf, from adventure racing to the Iron Kids events, from high speed track racing to whitewater kayak clinics… there is something here to entertain and challenge you!

Or you can just hang out, enjoy music and food while watching the competitions. Visit with vendors and test out products, and get lots of great information for enjoying the outdoors.

The Mountain Sports Festival is a weekend event that celebrates community, athletics and local business, while showcasing the terrain, environment and unique culture of Asheville and the surrounding mountains. The Mountain Sports Festival is organized by a group of community oriented volunteers dedicated to presenting a well balanced series of events that encourages participation on all levels. It features professional and amateur level competitions in paddling, adventure racing, running, cycling, climbing, skateboarding and many other activities.

The heart of the festival located at Carrier Park on Amboy Rd. along the French Broad River in West Asheville features entertainment, food, souvenirs, clinics and demonstrations

Also May 28th you can take a drive to Brevard for the The White Squirrel Festival. It’s two days of nutty, family fun over the Memorial Day Weekend. The music is the major showcase, giving prominence to national and even international performers who are connected to Transylvania County. This year BonePony and Jupiter Coyote headline the Saturday and Sunday concerts, along with 16 other FREE concerts! It’s no wonder that last year the White Squirrel Festival was recognized by the Southeast Tourism Society as one of the TOP 20 May festivals in the entire region.

Pinecrest Inn Bed & Breakfast is a hop, skip and a jump from all the festival action this summer. Stay at our Asheville Inn and enjoy sumptuous breakfast and luxurious suites at affordable room rates. Call 888-811-3053 or visit www.pinecrestbb.com for details and reservations.

Asheville FringeArts Festival January 20-23

January 18th, 2011 by Stacy Shelley

And now for something uniquely Asheville — a performing extravaganza on the fourth weekend of January.

The Asheville Fringe Arts Festival provides artists with opportunities to explore the edges of their work, collaborate across genres and bring new and innovative performances to culturally adventurous audiences.

The Asheville Fringe Arts Festival serves patrons of art from Asheville and beyond by facilitating the creation and production of avant garde work that may otherwise not find a venue. In past years the artistic mix has included actors, dancers, singers, videographers, painters and musicians, presenting a varied range of interesting work including cross-genre improvisation, Butoh dance, sketch theatre, modern dance, and multi-media performance art. The spirit of the festival also leaves the city “vulnerable” to random acts of art, such as fire-dancing in the street or mass mobs of poets.

Each venue plays host to a variety of performers, assuring an interesting mix to challenge and delight audiences. The BeBe Theatre is the Fringe headquarters and box office for tickets, but they will have other venues for the amazing artists and performances in the upcoming festival.  The four venues are: Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center; Asheville Art Museum; BeBe Theatre and River Arts District.

Your venue for the weekend is the Pinecrest Bed and Breakfast which provides a comfortable bed, fantastic food and puts you close to all of the action.  Join us on the Fringe!
