This weekend art affair will feature a collection of national and regional artists specializing in hand-made works of art. There will be painters, potters, jewelers, glass blowers and much more. Asheville’s historic Pack Square Park is the picturesque venue for the Downtown Asheville Festival of the Arts. This regional landmark has been a focal point since the city’s creation in 1797, lying at the intersection of ancient trading paths. The beautiful public park has grown to 6.5 acres for events and visitors to relax while they enjoy all that Downtown Asheville has to offer.
