7 MORE GREAT REASONS
to join us in 1 WEEK for the
Explore Asheville Holiday Party!
1. CVB SUPERSTAR AWARDS: FIND OUT THE WINNERS!
For the 9th consecutive year, we'll recognize and honor partners for their outstanding contributions and support throughout the year. Join us to find out this year's winners of the Explore Asheville SuperStar Awards!
2. HOLIDAY GIVING OPPORTUNITY: TOYS FOR TOTS.
This is a giving community! So, we're pleased to invite you to contribute an unwrapped toy for our annual Toys for Tots collection to bring joy to local children in need.
3. NEARBY PARKING (WINDOW SHOP ALONG THE WAY!).
Paid parking is available across the street from the Center for Craft, with more at the nearby HomeTrust Bank starting at 5 pm. Or, enjoy window shopping when you take a short walk from parking decks on Rankin or the AC Hotel, or the two paid lots on Lexington Avenue.
4. HOLIDAY CHEER FROM WICKED WEED.
With big thanks to beer sponsor Wicked Weed, there'll be tasty craft brews to cheer the holidays! We'll serve other locally procured – and super yummy – beverages 'n' bites as well!
5. SEASONAL NETWORKING & FESTIVE ATTIRE.
The Explore Asheville Holiday Party is one of the tourism community’s most anticipated networking and holiday events. Come as festively dressed as you wish – sparkly, whimsical, ugly (as in, Christmas sweaters) – we've seen it all! (And don't forget to accessorize by wearing your holiday mask to comply with Buncombe's mask mandate.)
6. SAFE & IN PERSON + A CULTURAL EXPERIENCE.
We're delighted to host our first in-person holiday gathering in two years at the Center for Craft! We'll be following public safety protocols to keep everyone safe and invite you to do the same. Plus: Take in the “Black in Black on Black: Making the Invisible Visible” exhibit currently on view in the gallery.
7. CREATIVE SPIRIT & OH YEAH... IT'S FREE!
Asheville's creative spirit will be on display with great entertainment along with some special surprises! As usual, this event is free but space is limited and the clock is ticking. Sign up now!
We can't wait to celebrate with you –1 WEEK FROM TODAY!
