Asheville Fall Colors, Forecast & Weekend Events

Big weekend coming up for Asheville
, not only in terms of leaves and colors, but the region will also host a couple of our premier Autumn festivals. The Citizen Times gives us this report on colors.

This weekend in particular would be a great time to hop in the car, (we are a day's drive from almost half of the US population), and visit Asheville in all of its eclectic hipness.

The 25th Lake Eden Arts Festival
First up is something that is purely Asheville in character, The 25th Lake Eden Arts Festival, appropriately known as "LEAF". LEAF is indescribable as an event.

It is a feast for the senses, no matter what your tastes. Arrive early, stay late for, salsa, swing, contra, hip hop, cajun, zydeco, blue grass, old timey, arts, crafts, food, and a stellar list of performers in a dizzying array of venues from intimate to acceptably raucous. Tickets and directions can be located here.

Impossible to capture LEAF in all of its expansiveness, but here is a small piece of it on video, from Friday May, 18 2007 it would appear.

The 60th Annual Craft Fair of the Southern Highlands
If one is more a bit more sedate, then by all means check out this event run by the thoroughly respected Southern Highland Crafts Guild this weekend at The Asheville Civic Center. The Guild is available no matter where you visit in the mountains and runs a number of different retail locations in the region, including downtown Asheville.

Details are here for the fair itself including exhibitors in all manner of media, many with links to their personal websites. Thursday October 18 through Sunday October 21.
