The Downtown Asheville Festival of the Arts returns to Pack Square on Memorial Day Weekend. Asheville’s historic Pack Square is the picturesque back drop for the festival. The show is set up on the streets of North Pack Square and South Pack Square around the Vance Memorial as well as Reuter Terrace. Pack Square is a regional landmark that has been a focal point since the city’s creation. Asheville is known for a vibrant arts scene and historic architecture. Downtown Asheville attracts both locals and visitors every Memorial Day Weekend to kick off the summer. 

Crafters are also encouraged to apply, as a separate Crafters Market will be included in the event. Please apply through ZAPP and chose "craft section" as your category. There will be no green market.
