Asheville Events: 25th Annual Goombay Festival & The Beach Boys


The 25th Annual Goombay Festival will grace various streets and locations in downtown Asheville this weekend, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, 08/24 through 08/26. Full schedule can be located here.

We will not attempt to define Goombay, other than to say it is an Afro-West Indies style of rhythm and dance which derives its name from a skin covered drum. What is important to note is its continued existence as a cultural celebration, which includes food, dance, music and crafts.

For flavor, a fairly extensive web page, including video and photos from past events is located here. Don't miss the men on stilts.

Beach Boys in Canton?
The Beach Boys will be playing Pisgah Memorial Stadium in Canton on Saturday, Aug. 25, 7 p.m. A big score for the town, regardless of how many of the original band still go on tour. Proceeds will equally benefit the Booster Clubs at Enka and Pisgah High Schools, and The Canton Cultural Committee.

Full List of Upcoming Western North Carolina Festivals, from The Asheville Citizen Times.
