The safety and wellbeing of residents, employees, planners and meeting attendees living in or visiting Buncombe County are top priorities for everyone. We join you in a desire to restart the meetings industry, but recognize that extra precautions will be necessary for some time.
Indoor dining is fully open; however, space may be limited. Please check ahead and make a reservation, if possible. Please come prepared and adhere to individual business' protocols. Thank you for your patience!
Effective May 14, 2021, all capacity restrictions and social distancing requirements were lifted for North Carolina restaurants, bars and meeting spaces in hotels. Some venues may continue to implement stronger restrictions on a case-by-case basis and unvaccinated people should continue to maintain social distance from others and wear face coverings.
Asheville Cares Meet Safe Pledge
Our pledge is a shared commitment with you and all meeting participants to keep each other healthy.
Our meeting properties have enhanced meeting and event space cleaning and safety protocols in place, drawing from current guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, N.C. Health and Human Services and local health departments along with recommendations from the U.S. Travel Association, APEX COVID-19 Business Recovery Task Force Guidelines, and hotel corporate offices. These guidelines will change depending on new guidance received from governmental departments.
