Shindig on the Green 2014 dates: June 28, July 5, 12, 19, August 9, 16, 23, 30
Downtown Asheville at Roger McGuire Green at Pack Square Park, 7-10 PM (Free Admission)

In 2014, Shindig on the Green, the free mountain bluegrass music and dance festival, will return to its longtime home in the center of downtown Asheville, on Roger McGuire Green at Pack Square Park in front of the Asheville City Hall.

Don't miss one of our favorite authentic events of the year, and we thrilled to be a major sponsor. Locals and visitors alike gather “along about sundown,” or at seven o’clock for those who wear a watch.

Musicians and dancers from across Western North Carolina gather on these Saturday nights to share the region's stirring Southern Appalachian mountain culture and traditions-with each other and visitors from around the world-at the Shindig on the Green.

Shindig on the Green

Bring a lawn chair or blanket and stake out a spot on the "green." But don't sit in your chair the entire time. Performers go on stage for just two numbers each, so the real jewel is the clusters of musicians that get together for informal jam sessions under the trees and on the sidewalk. Anyone can join in! Learn some new moves at one of the street dances. Also, don't miss their Mountain Dance and Folk Festival.

They also have the Mountain Dance and Folk Festival indoor concert in downtown Asheville on July 31-August 2.

For another authentic Asheville event, see the Drumming Circle on Friday nights.
