LAAFF Festival, Asheville

September 6, 2015, 11 AM-9 PM
LAAFF (Lexington Avenue Arts and Fun Festival) is a festive street festival that showcases the creative personality of Asheville with a focus on local. Join in the annual end-of-summer (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 entire family. There will be lots of new vendors as well as old favorites with plenty of variety. Experience the original local flavor of Asheville.

Asheville Mardi Gras and Friends will make a grand entrance to the Lexington Avenue Fun Festival with Dixieland Tunes by Asheville Second Line. They will start at Pritchard Park at 3:30 PM and march to LAAFF.

UnifireTheater will bring Asheville's own premiere fire performance and arts entertainment to the corner of Lexington and Walnut at 8:45 PM.

No pets, biking, skating or outside alcohol allowed within festival area. It's free to attend.
