This weekend promises be a journey back in time, of sorts, in Downtown Asheville. The 62nd Asheville Antiques Fair and the 81st Mountain Dance and Folk Festival will both bring timeless traditions into the present day.
The Asheville Antiques Fair, at the Civic Center, will be a great place to go shopping. Dozens of exhibitors will be featuring some of their most-prized finds. Auction appraisers will also be on-hand to help people figure out what their heirlooms might be worth.
If clogging and dulcimers are more your style, head over to Diana Wortham Theatre for the Mountain Dance and Folk Festival. This is authentic, old-timey stuff, but you'll be surprised how many people (young and old) are keeping it alive.
Both events take place Friday through Saturday.
