Art in Autumn

An annual, juried Art and Crafts festival that takes place on the second Saturday in September.

The 15th annual Art in Autumn Outdoor Arts and Crafts Festival was September 17th. This much loved event is held on Main Street in downtown Weaverville, North Carolina, located in Buncombe county 7 miles from downtown Asheville.

Mark your calendar for next year: Saturday, September 16th, 2023.

The Artist Application for 2022 will open February 1, 2023.

Taking over Main Street every year, this event features over 100 juried artists and craftspeople, and live music performed by beloved local artists.

The 2022 list of Artists is 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.

Thanks to the incredible generosity of our guest Judge in 2022, every winner also received free Artist Memberships to the Asheville Art Museum.
