Any time of the year is a great time to let your freak flag fly in Asheville, but the 4th of July gives you a particularly great excuse to celebrate what makes you, uniquely you!
With the 4th of July is nearly upon us, downtown Asheville offers all you could desire this Independence Day!
Pack Square Park, an easy walk from Hotel Indigo Asheville Downtown, is the heart of the holiday events. Downtown Asheville’s fireworks will begin at 9:30 pm, but we recommend you show up early to snag a good seat for the show.
There will be food trucks serving up delicious Asheville eats, as well as beer & wine vendors on site. (Remember to bring cash and a valid photo ID – they will be selling wrist bands to facilitate age-appropriate consumption.)
Early in the day its all about the kids in Pack Square: From 2-6 pm there will be bouncey houses, obstacle courses, & other activities; and for just $3, a wristband will give the kiddos free reign to jump, race, & slide to their little hearts’ content! Asheville’s Splashville fountain will also be on during this time, offering a great place to cool off after all that fun!
Live music starts at 4 pm with Grits & Soul, a hybrid Bluegrass, Honky Tonk, Celtic, Southern Gospel, and Blues band. At 6 pm, Joe Lasher Jr. hits the stage with a blend of Rock, Blues, & Americana. At 8 pm, Jim Lauderdale headlines with Americana/Country.
Throughout the day, the Ultimate Air Dogs will be competing in all their canine glory. Shows will be at 1 pm, 3 pm, & 5 pm, with the finals kicking off at 7 pm.
All of Asheville’s 4th of July festivities are just a quick walk from the beautiful Hotel Indigo Asheville Downtown. We still have a few rooms available, so reserve yours today!
Of course while you are celebrating the nation’s Independence, don’t forget to buy local in downtown. Asheville boasts a plethora of independently-owned shops, breweries, art galleries, and restaurants. However you choose to celebrate your independence and passion, Asheville is the ideal place to get away this 4th of July.
