A similar festival returns on August 31, 2014 after being cancelled in 2013!

LAAFF is a fun street festival that showcases the creative personality of Asheville with a focus on local. Join in the annual end-of-summer (always the Sunday of Labor Day Weekend) celebration of Asheville's artistic and musical communities. Three blocks of North Lexington Ave in downtown Asheville brim with all local art, food, beer, music, street performers, and random acts of creativity between College Street and the I-240 overpass.

Three stages and two courtyards of music and performance include rock and roll, indie pop, funk, folk, ragtime, reggae, world beats, singer songwriters, bluegrass, old time, drummers, vaudeville, fire dancers, break dancers, hula hoopers, and circus arts. More interactive areas include sideshow, hoops, face painting, freak fashions, hands on art fun, and a variety of surprising creative offerings from the local arts community.

LAAFF is an experience for the whole family. Kids love making art, dancing, getting their faces painted and having fun all day long.  The big “kids” enjoy the ever popular bicycle jousting, local brews, an eclectic culinary and artistic experience, as well as the new big people game, Big Wheels for Big Kids. There will be lots of fun new vendors as well as old favorites with a ton of variety.

Come prepared for many LAAFFs and to truly experience the original local flavor of Asheville. No pets, biking, skating or outside alcohol allowed within festival area.

It's free to attend.
