White Squirrel Festival
Pretty much everyone goes wild for this three-day event, named the region’s “Best Spring Music Festival” by the Asheville Citizen-Times. This year’s line-up includes the Jeff Austin Band, Front Country and the Jeff Sipe Trio. But the great stage performances are not the only shows worth watching at the festival. Wander down to the Squirrel Box Derby to see speedy, decorative homemade vehicles compete for the golden nut, watch the Memorial Day Parade, take a 5K or 10K run in the White Squirrel race, grab a bite from the delicious sidewalk vendors and lots, lots more.
Go nuts here.
