Applications open for the Venture Local Fair in Asheville

3/21/18 update from Asheville Grown: the date provided for May was wrong. The May fair will take place Saturday, May 26th.

The 2018 Venture Local Fair will occur at 68 Haywood St. in downtown Asheville every 4th Saturday for 6 months, May through October. Please mark your calendars for these dates: May 26, June 23, July 28, August 25, September 22, October 27.

From the announcement:

Mark your calendars for every 4th Saturday of each month from May through October 2018, and help us transform 68 Haywood St. in downtown Asheville into the Pit of Love!

The Venture Local Fair cultivates a community of localists. We come together to create a supportive environment where small businesses grow. Watch as makers, artists, collectors, musicians, chefs, entertainers and inventors magically turn 68 Haywood into a bustling, family-friendly, mini-village of discovery.

Our first event is Saturday May 27 26 from Noon - 7pm. If you are a local maker, artist, service provider or found-objects purveyor we want you to join us in making this festival come alive!

Vendors can apply for any or all of the 6 dates.

The Venture Local Fair is a project of the Asheville Grown Business Alliance.
