Twice a year, the world reminds us what a wonderful destination we live in for arts and crafts. The Weaverville Art Safari brings crowds to our tiny town, filling the streets with patrons who want to get the best deal on the latest creation by their favorite artists.
The spring Art Safari is this weekend, May 12 and 13, with the famous preview party from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, May 11, at Reems Creek Golf Course clubhouse. The price for the preview party remains a ridiculously low $10.
Can’t make it this weekend? Two more events are on the Weaverville calendar and well worth the trip. We’ll blog more about them later. But mark your calendar for May 26, 27 and 28, for Weaverville’s first Roots Festival, a celebration of culture, history and all that makes us unique. Everything’s free. Also, consider joining us for the Asheville Bed and Breakfast Association Tour of Inns on June 9 and 10. Inn on Main Street is on the Sunday segment of the tour, and will feature delectibles from Stoney Knob Cafe and Jack of Hearts Pub. Yum. Our two-night guests get free tickets.
