October 5, 12, 19  10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Many people who stay at our Asheville resort cabins want to view and purchase art made by local artists. While plenty of galleries and festivals offer incredible selections, none have a focus on “local” like the Asheville Art in the Park festivals.

Located in beautiful Pack Square Park, with views of gorgeous architecture in every direction, this event takes place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on three consecutive Saturdays in June and October. Many of Asheville’s most famous names will be on hand, as well as plenty of up and coming folks from the area.   [caption id="attachment_912" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Photo from Asheville Art in the Park Facebook page[/caption] Countless media outlets have praised the city’s arts scene, including the New York Times, Southern Living and Travel + Leisure. Readers of American Style Magazine even voted us “Top Small City Arts Destination,” ahead of noted destinations such as Sante Fe. The beauty of the mountains seems to feed creativity, making Western North Carolina a regional hub for crafts. Asheville also has many enclaves of creativity, from downtown to the River Arts District.

You can stop in while touring downtown Asheville and its fantastic selection of shopping, dining and sight seeing. So, if you are lucky enough to be staying at one of Asheville’s resorts on one of these Saturdays, put this festival on your “to see” list. If you’re not, book an Asheville luxury cabin with us so you can be part of the fun.
