Looking for a way to experience the funky arts-and-crafts side of Asheville? Check out the Big Crafty on Sunday, July 11, at Pack Place and Pack Square from 12 noon to 6 p.m. This larger-than-life festival features over 140 artists and crafters carefully selected for their innovation, creativity and eco-mindedness.
The result is a free event that has an incredible reputation for being the best in the region. The emphasis is on local hand-made creations, so each booth is a testament to originality and Asheville’s unique spirit.
The Big Crafty also features artist demonstrations, music by DJ Whitney Shore, live music, food and drinks. Short Street Cakes will have cupcakes available for purchase and micro-brewed beer from Pisgah Brewing and other local breweries will be available for a small donation.
