Art in Autumn
Arts & Crafts Festival
A juried art and crafts festival for 14 years on Main Street, Weaverville, NC.
The 15th annual Art in Autumn Outdoor Arts and Crafts Festival takes place on September 17th, 2022. This much loved event is held on Main Street in downtown Weaverville, North Carolina, located in Buncombe county 7 miles from downtown Asheville.
The festival features over 100 juried artists and craftspeople, and live music. Artists will be juried by our esteemed judge to receive awards of $1000 for best of show, $500 for second place, and $300 for third, as well as 4 $50 honorable mentions.
Weaverville has established itself as a culturally rich destination point, with its now well-established street festival each September. It has earned a reputation for its quaint atmosphere, artistic spirit, and distinctive shops and restaurants.
The annual Art in Autumn festival brings a jovial celebration of community and fine art and craft to the Main Street of this lovely small town.
All are welcome. Admission and parking are free.
Handicapped parking is available at Weaverville United Methodist Church
Art in Autumn 2021 featured Justin Rabuck, a distinguished judge from the regional arts and crafts scene.
Justin is the organizer of ‘The Big Crafty’, Asheville’s renowned and beloved local arts and crafts bazaar. He is also the co-owner of Horse and Hero, a downtown Asheville showcase for boundary-pushing art and craft where people can get connected with local artists, designers and craftspeople for creative projects. We were so thrilled that he participated in the return of Art in Autumn this year!
