Art in Autumn – September 17th, 2022

Arts & Crafts Festival

Art in Autumn is a juried art and crafts festival 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.

This event features over 100 juried artists and craftspeople, and live music performed by beloved local artists. View the 2021 participating Artists here.

Every year, we invite a Judge from the local Art scene to join us. During the show, artists are juried by our esteemed Judge to receive awards of $1000 for best of show, $500 for second place, and $250 for third, as well as 4 $50 honorable mentions. View past Award Winners here.

Weaverville has established itself as a culturally rich destination, with its now well-established street festival each September. The Town 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.

Art in Autumn 2022 will feature Whitney Richardson as our distinguished judge from the regional arts and crafts scene.

Whitney is the Associate Curator at the Asheville Art Museum. We are so thrilled that she will participate in Art in Autumn this year!

From load-in to break down, the event logistics of Art in Autumn are seamlessly executed by an amazing group of volunteers from the business community as well as the greater Weaverville community. Our goal is to make the artist’s experience in our town as positive as possible.

Each volunteer receives a free Art in Autumn t-shirt in appreciation for their efforts!
