Our area in Western North Carolina is known for having some of the most breathtaking natural views you can find, but it is also home to many great activities and events. At Orchard Inn, we love helping our guests find fun things to do while they are here with us. Some of our guests enjoy going to nearby Asheville for many activities. One thing about Asheville is that there is always something going on or someplace new to see. The best way to figure out what is happening in Asheville is to check out an Asheville calendar of events. However, there are so many Asheville event listings out there that it can be a bit overwhelming. To help, our team at Orchard Inn have combed through many Asheville event calendars and handpicked some amazing events that should be a lot of fun.
The first in our Asheville calendar of events that you should look into is Asheville Beer Week. If you aren’t aware, Asheville is a haven for all types of beer lovers. There are many craft breweries here as well as some big names in brewing. This year’s Asheville Beer Week will be the 4th one and each year it has grown bit by bit. It will be held in various locations from May 22nd-30th. There will be education, tastings (of course!), music, and fun. Be sure to check out their schedule of events so you can pick and choose which event you would like to go to.
One event that is on the Asheville calendar of events, as well as many local’s, is the Downtown Asheville Art Walk. This happens the first Friday of every month from 5 to 8 pm and is a time for art enthusiasts to enjoy the beauty of the town. There are 25 galleries to choose from in a half mile radius so it would also be a good idea to check them out and pick which ones you want to visit. Here is a great site that will show you some of the Asheville galleries to choose from.
Our next activity in our Asheville area calendar of events is always a great time whether you are Scottish or not, the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games. Atop beautiful Grandfather Mountain, you will see descendants of many Scottish clans come together and celebrate their heritage through games, music, dancing and more. This year’s Grandfather Mountain Highland Games will be held July 9th-12th. Be sure to check out their schedule of events perfect for adults and children alike!
The last activity in our Asheville event calendar is hosted by one of the most iconic places in Asheville, The Biltmore Estate. Known for having exquisite grounds and top service in anything they do, we all know an event at The Biltmore will be amazing. They want to encourage visitors to enjoy the beautiful mountain air and weather by having their Live After Five event. They encourage guests to have dinner at the local restaurants in Antler Hill Village and then come to the Village Green for live music. This event will be on the Asheville calendar of events every Friday and Saturday from May 22nd until October 31st and will feature a host of many different types of musicians. Be sure to check their monthly schedule to know who will be playing.
When you have such a full calendar of events, it’s easy to get bogged down in choosing. We at Orchard Inn hope that our picks from the many upcoming Asheville events have helped you start thinking about fun activities to do here while you are in the Western North Carolina mountains. When you do decide to come this way, we hope you will consider coming to stay with us. Our beautiful B&B is nestled in the hills of Saluda, just minutes from many amazing activities. Each morning you will be greeted with gorgeous views of the mountains as well as a delicious homemade breakfast prepared by our chefs each morning. Contact us today and we will have a room ready for you.
