Xpand Fest returns for a second year to the popular South Slope near downtown Asheville (a.k.a. The Brewing District). It will utilize our amazing local arts community to promote positive self-growth for attendees and share tools to create a better world. It’s presented by Xpand Your Vision, a new arts organization in Asheville. Festival hours are 11 AM-9 PM. Admission is free.
With 30+ performing groups and 35+ local art and food vendors, the action will center on Banks and Buxton Avenue. The Broadcast and The Fritz will be closing the night as the local headline performances. Also included will be aerial arts, a dance class, acting performances and creative games/activities. The nonprofit arts arcade will include information on local businesses efforts towards healthy and sustainable development.
Inspired by the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals, Xpand Fest will focus on local performers and community members who remind us of the powerful ability to transform through creativity. The festival was created to encourage Asheville to expand their vision of all art disciplines and celebrate their societal impact.
More details will be announced soon. Read more about the South Slope.
