Our Signature Events
Ask most anyone and they’ll excitedly explain we’re the people who do all-free-fun-on-car-free-streets. True. (We say we’re a movement that’s designing Asheville’s future by inspiring health & wellness and building community on our largest public spaces, the streets.) Each of the events we host takes place for a few hours one Sunday afternoon in September on car-free streets that form a downtown route that hugging Asheville landmarks. With eager participation from local groups, we fill the streets with free yoga, massage, dance, pop-up playgrounds, bike skills clinics, local shopping, arts and much more. Sidewalk storefronts offer special sales and cafes offer pop-up service in the street. Ultimately, we hope to offer our street parties more often, and in neighborhoods other than only downtown’s Learn about getting involved in the fun as a sponsor, street partner or volunteer!
