There’s a time of year when color and texture abound in Weaverville in a display that brings visitors from all over the Southeast.
Nope, it’s not leaf season yet. It’s Art in Autumn.
Our street art festival is only three years old, but it’s already proven to be a popular attraction. Dozens of artists, local and otherwise, fill Main Street. it’s a little like getting a head start on the Craft Fair of the Southern Highlands or the Weaverville Art Safari, two other events that bring patrons of the arts with Christmas shopping in mind.
Art in Autumn epitomizes what makes Weaverville charming, or as we residents call a cosmopolitan Mayberry. The festival includes some of the finest arts and crafts created in the Southeast, but displayed in the quaint atmosphere of our tiny town, home to a handful of cozy cafes, galleries and studios, and a luxury spa.
And, of course, we’re also home to Inn on Main Street, which we hope helps reflect that casual, friendly, yet sophisticated atmosphere that makes Weaverville so enjoyable. Come join us for the festival.
