Downtown after Five is a once-a-month summer event you can’t miss (a true tourist and local favorite). The 2nd show of the season starts today! Stop by Lexington Ave. after 5 for a FREE outdoor concert, where The Blue Dogs and The New Familiars will play their hearts out. You’ll find local food vendors of all flavors and styles for a tasty evening meal, and plenty of local beer to sample. Proceeds from each beer sale go towards local non-profits, so drink freely and be ready to have a good time. After the show, explore downtown and all the attractions Asheville has to offer. It’s the perfect start to a great weekend getaway in beautiful Western NC!
