A true Ashevillian Event since 2001. Come join te fun as the crowd gathers at Prichard Park each Friday evening through mid October from around 6 to 10 pm. Join in to play drums, cowbells, or any percussion instrument, to dance, or simply to watch. Free.
Described as Asheville’s “favorite tradition” the Friday Night Drum Circles at Pritchard Park in downtown Asheville have been drawing locals and tourists alike. Bring a drum, or just come to dance or listen and watch. If you want to celebrate and dance under the stars, this is the place to be.
Drum Circles usually last until mid-October, or as long as the weather is warm enough for an outdoor gathering. Eat at one of the many restaurants in Downtown Asheville before or after the Drum Circle, which is close to Pack Square, Battery Park Avenue and Haywood Road.
