Art in Autumn 2023 FAQ’s



Where’s the best place to park?


Parking is always a logistical consideration for Art in Autumn due to the coming and going nature of the festival.

The Art in Autumn committee has volunteers operating 3 dedicated parking lots: West Funeral Home, the Primary School Ball Field, and the First Presbyterian Church.

In addition, the First Baptist Church and United Methodist Church are offering parking for $5 as a fundraiser.

Please be nice to the parking attendants.  They are all volunteers just trying to help ? Also your patience is super appreciated.

If you are up for a walk, there is plenty of parking at the Weaverville Elementary School, the Weaverville Community Center, and along Weaver Blvd, all of which are under 1 mile away from the festival.

Please remember that street parking on residential streets is illegal in Weaverville.

Is there handicap parking?

Yes!  Handicap Parking is in the Primary School Staff Lot.  It can be accessed from Park Ave off of Brown Street.  See the parking map above.


Is there somewhere I can drop off my grandma / wife with the stroller so they don’t have to walk all the way from parking to the festival?


Yep! We have a drop off and pick up point on the north side and the south side.  If you’re coming from the north, the First Baptist Church have generously offered their drive through on Pine Street.  If you’re coming from the south, you can pull into the bus parking lot at the Primary School on Main Street.  Enter as if you’re going to park at the ball field.  But please pull over while unloading so other cars can pass and we can keep traffic moving.


Will there be bathrooms?

Yes, porta potties will be located along the side of the Frontier building, in the Municipal Parking lot, and along Church Street.


Can I bring my dog (or domesticated friend)?


Yes.  Art is Autumn is outdoors and open to your pets.  However, we have a lot of precious and expensive art everywhere.  Please keep your pets away from other people’s treasures.


Where and what time is the road closed?

Main Street in between Church and Brown will be closed from 5am to about 8pm, depending on how long clean up takes.


Where is there to eat or get a drink?

We have many fabulous food and beverage businesses along Main Street, including Twisted Laurel, Maggie B’s, Main Street Grille, Well Bred Bakery, Yellow Mug, Leveller, Eluvium, Hoppy Trees, Glass Onion, and Blue Mountain Pizza.
