River Arts District Second Saturday Events

  • This event has passed.

August 8, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm


Asheville River Arts District

On the Second Saturday of each month, Asheville’s River Arts District holds gallery walks with demonstrations, workshops, live music, wine tastings, delicious food, and more. Visitors meander the mile-long district and discover all that the “RAD” has to offer. There are more than 200 artists in the 22 buildings throughout the district. Many of them open during this monthly event to describe or show their techniques and share their inspirations.

> There will be no trolley service on Second Saturdays for the time being, due to coronavirus concerns. Ample free parking is available in the district and walkability is increasing every week with the greenway expansion getting close to completion!

Both in person and virtual events are happening for Second Saturday. Events with an *asterisk are available online (some both in person and online).
