As a 501(c)3 non-profit, the mission of Chow Chow Asheville is to celebrate and enrich the unique foodways of the Southern Appalachian region. As makers, chefs, artists, and farmers, our vision is an equitable and thriving regional food system, where culinary and creative enterprise are central to community identity and resilience.
Equity Around the Table: All sponsors of and participants in Chow Chow 2021 have been asked to support our efforts toward building a more equitable organization and programming. We hope you will also join us in our work towards building equity around the table.
This inspired, friendly and free-spirited food scene tucked in the mountains of Appalachia has been called “Foodtopia,” but the locals just call it home. Plan your trip now.
