The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Go Alternative in Asheville


4. Insider’s Tip

Pritchard Park hosts a massive drum circle on Friday nights in the heart of downtown.  

For a firsthand taste of Asheville’s bohemian vibe, saunter over to downtown’s Pritchard Park (Patton Avenue at College Street) on Friday nights, when a huge, informal drum and dance circle appears after 6 p.m. The unsanctioned collective of Asheville’s free spirits, of which there are many, can grow to more than 100 people, letting loose as professional and amateur percussionists drum out beats until 10 p.m. If you want to join in, bring an instrument anything from a cowbell to a set of jangling keys will do.
