Mountain Dance and Folk Festival in Asheville

Great Bluegrass Music!

The nation’s longest running folk festival is next weekend in downtown Asheville. The Mountain Dance and Folk Festival runs Thursday through Saturday, August 4, 5, & 6, at 7:00 PM nightly at Diana Wortham Theatre at Pack Place in downtown Asheville. Come one night or all three! This three-day event showcases real mountain performers who share songs and dances that echo centuries of Scottish, English, Irish, Cherokee and African heritage.

On opening Night August 4, arrive early for the 6:30-7 PM pre-show featuring cultural dance by Cherokee’s Warriors of AniKituhwa.
