Children working on art projects outside in the grass.

Asheville Downtown Association’s Pritchard Park Summer Series brings free, family-friendly programming to Pritchard Park several nights per week throughout the warm season.

The Wednesday night events, called Cultural Arts and Science nights, take place from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm on Wednesdays, now through August 7, 2019. Join LEAF Schools and Streets for cultural arts from both local and global traditions — all in the heart of downtown Asheville!

Each event includes a performance aspect in addition to interactive, hands-on workshops by LEAF Resident Teaching Artists and the LEAF Easel Rider Mobile Art Lab. All events are open to the public and suitable for all ages.

Please note, shows are weather dependent, and events are subject to change slightly.
