Downtown After Five provides free live music concerts in downtown Asheville every third Friday, May through September. Thousands gather on North Lexington Avenue near the I-240 overpass, 5-9 PM for the free event, celebrating its 25th year!

Thirsty concert-goers find local brews from Highland Brewing Company, Pisgah Brewing, Asheville Brewing Company and French Broad Brewing Company. Plus, regional favorites Sierra Nevada and SweetWater Brewing as well as national brands from Budweiser of Asheville and Empire Distributing will be on tap.
