Asheville’s historic Pack Square is the picturesque back drop for the Downtown Asheville Festival of the Arts. Pack Square Park is a regional landmark that has been a focal point since the city’s creation. The show is set up on the streets of North Pack Square and South Pack Square around the Vance Memorial.  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.
