Asheville Events

Let's get away from statistics and trends for a while. Here's a quick roundup of some events of note for the coming days.

Opening Friday July 10
From The Asheville Travel Blog: Nantahala Gorge Canopy Tours. Let's explain.

One of the peculiarities of weather in a mountainous region such as ours is that certain areas get a lot of rain. In fact, some portions of Western NC are categorized as temperate rain forests. The canopy tours are a combination of zip lines and "sky bridges" allowing a first hand look at several ecosystems in a veritable rain forest environment.

Saturday July 11
The 4th Hot Doggett 100: Right here in Mars Hill. Three different bike rides including a 3 mile family option. Event organizers stress that the entire event is a ride, not a race.

More than 300 riders are expected, and we have seen a number here all week riding and acclimating to our back roads. Nice maps, courtesy of UNC-Asheville, with a narrative from The Citizen Times as well.

Saturday and Sunday, July 11-12
From Ashvegas, a rundown on 3 outdoor fairs in various locations in town. The events range from sales of recycled goods to The Big Crafty on Sunday, smack downtown at Pack Square. The Crafty features more than 100 independent artisans from the area.

A fan of street fairs? Stay in touch with the Asheville Street Markets blog, and The Asheville People's Market.

And of course, what is by now a tradition when we do these kinds of postings, This Weekend on a Shoe String.

July 16-19
The 62nd Edition of The Crafts Fair of the Southern Highlands
July 16-19, full details at the website, and cheap too, kids under 12 free, adults just $7.
