Annual Mountain Dance and Folk Festival showcase performances by hundreds of the Southern Appalachians' best traditional mountain musicians and dancers. Bound by the tradition of "Along About Sundown" these gatherings call to mind, and continue the tradition, of the era when local folks of all ages regularly gathered at the end of the day on front porches and the like, with fiddles, banjos and guitars in hand and dancing feet at the ready. Come celebrate the treasured cultural heritage of Western North Carolina throughout the summer at these events organized by Asheville's
Folk Heritage Committee.
