Big Love Fest coming back to Asheville on Sunday, May 6
A letter to Asheville from Big Love Fest:
Last year we sent you a love letter and then had the dreamiest date. Now it’s our anniversary, and the torch we carry for you is still burning bright.
In celebration of you, we’re throwing a party. Let’s do it again!
Asheville Grown Business Alliance and The Big Crafty are putting on another celebration of unchained and independent Asheville. We like to think of Big Love Fest as a ritual affirmation of the value of community in commerce and a festive annual showcase of the amazing things Ashevillians are up to.
And this year we have even more to celebrate! In recognition of the natural connection between the local economy, our vibrant community and our schools, we’re partnering with the Asheville City Schools Foundation through the Go Local Card program. Look for the Love Asheville – Go Local Card offers throughout the festival!
In addition, we are pleased to announce our musical guests Kovacs and the Polar Bear, Floating Action, Pleasure Chest and the Decent Lovers. This year Asheville FM, our fair city’s newest, non-profit, community radio station is joining hands with the Big Love Festival. They will be hosting a stage jam-packed with local musicians and DJs ushering in summer with the piping hot sounds of sonic wow.
Big Love Fest is sponsored and made possible by over 150 local and independent businesses, crafters, artists, entertainers, restaurants, breweries, non-profits and is free to attend. Our mission is to highlight independently owned businesses in the community and to celebrate their vital economic, social and cultural role in our vibrant local economy. Our vendors have been selected & we will post them here soon.
See you there!
