Our third annual RomanticAsheville.com wall calendar in 2019 will benefit efforts to conserve and protect the natural beauty of our North Carolina mountains and foothills. We call it the "Giving Calendar" since 100% of the proceeds will go to two hard working land conservanices in the Asheville area. It will be available starting in August 2018 at a cost of just $10 each. Since all printing and design costs are covered, 100% of your donation will go directly to Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy and Conserving Carolina. More details coming soon!

Past Calendar Fundraisers
Great news! Thanks to your support, we raised $30,000 during our first two years with our calendar fundraiser. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the calendars went to the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area as they work hard to protect and promote our natural beauty and mountain heritage. They are a wonderful non-profit, affiliated with the National Park Service. Read more about them below.
2018: Titled "Beautiful Blue Ridge of North Carolina", it featured the jewels of our mountains and foothills that included national parks and forests, state parks, Biltmore, Cherokee heritage, small towns, art and more.
2017: Our the first wall calendar from RomanticAsheville.com featured some of our favorite waterfalls in the North Carolina Blue Ridge Mountains and Foothills near Asheville. The cover photo (above) is the hike to High Shoals Falls in South Mountains State Park.
