No Asheville regular would ever pose the question, "What is Bele Chere?" All of our "return" Asheville Bed and Breakfast Guests Eagerly Anticipate Bele Chere 2011 and some actually schedule their much coveted summer holiday with this event in mind. Now, that is a true compliment!
I will digress just a bit to explain that Bele Chere is an Asheville street festival with a wide variety of tunes, events, art and fun things for kids with the added bonus of all kinds of libations to drink and food available as well. To say only that does not do this community street party justice though. There is an electricity in the air as musicians of all kinds take the stage, impromptu dancing breaks out in the street and this controlled, safe but very fun party breaks loose in downtown Asheville over three days. The actual name, Bele Chere, is hatched from ancient Scottish times and means "beautiful living." We know you will agree once you come. Annual attendance for this raging good time is usually between 300,000 and 350,000.
The link for Bele Chere will give you all the information you need to know including parking, rules, shuttle service and more.
Save the Dates: July 29, July 30 and July 31 (Sunday is Alcohol Free Day) A better time cannot be had anywhere!
