Here is a great site from exploreasheville.com that lists the many music festivals in Asheville. Shindig on the Green is an annual favorite and is most Saturdays in July and August at Pack Square Park. If you go, don't just watch the main act - the fun is in wandering around the edges to see the many multi generational musical gigs happening. Really fun. Downtown After Five is the third Friday of each month May - September and is a stone's throw from our vacation rental, Drover's Way. There you can see a few bands perform and dance if you like - there will be local food and beer vendors as well, and it's a fun summer thing to do in the evening.
