Virtual Asheville Beer Week 2020
May 30 – May 31 all-day
online

WE’RE GOING VIRTUAL and Bringing AVL Beer Week to You!

Events added daily at: http://avlbeerweek.com/events

In light of current circumstances, we are unable to host AVL Beer Week in its traditional capacity. We have tentatively scheduled dates for a Fall AVL Beer Week, but will only proceed with planning and executing a physical beer week once we are 100% certain it is safe and practical to do so.

With that said, We’re excited to announce Virtual AVL Beer Week 2020: Friday, May 22-Sunday, May 31!

AVL Beer Week aims to promote all of the awesome stuff our local breweries are doing to keep us engaged, learning, having fun, and of course, enjoying local craft beverages during these uncertain times!

Join us on Facebook Live, Zoom and curbside to enjoy trivia, yoga, happy hours, to-go beer dinners, educational offerings, beer releases, beer specials and more!

AVL Beer Week relies on the vital support of participants to sustain, and with our culinary and beverage industries facing an uncertain future, we will be looking for new ways to gain that support by making AVL Beer Week donation based in order to make it open and accessible to all participating businesses. LOOK FOR OUR FUNDRAISER LAUNCH SOON!

Thank you for supporting WNC breweries and small businesses! Until we can once again gather in large numbers, we can band together in spirit over our various networks to bring the best of Asheville’s craft beverage scene into our homes.

Jun 3 – Jun 7 all-day
Deerfields

The 13th annual Firefly Gathering will take place June 3-7, 2020 at Deerfields in Mills River, NC, just 30 minutes outside of Asheville.

We gather each summer to learn and celebrate the skills necessary to live with the Earth. Our family-friendly classes, experiential learning, and culture bring together folks of all ages.

Each day is full of workshops spanning wilderness survival skills to permaculture, plant identification to cooking over fire, cow milking to bowl carving, basket weaving to blacksmithing. Through our time together at Firefly, we not only share skills to connect to the land, we connect also with ourselves, one another, our ancestors, and our future generations.
