Downtown After 5, presented by Prestige Subaru. Downtown After 5 takes place the 3rd Friday of the month May – September and is held on North Lexington Avenue. Events are free and open to the public. Rain or Shine!
Local favorites, Town Mountain, are returning to the Downtown After 5 stage. Their unique bluegrass sound is spiced with country, old school rock and boogie-woogie. It's what else goes into the mix that brings it all to life both on stage. With influences ranging from the Grateful Dead's Jerry Garcia and the ethereal lyrics of Robert Hunter, to the honest, vintage country of Willie, Waylon and Merle, the band has shared the stage with Greensky Bluegrass, Ralph Stanley, Jim Lauderdale and Asheville’s own The Steep Canyon Rangers.
Opener: Sanctum Sully
A delicious stew of rock, bluegrass, funk, psychedelia, country, folk & blues, Sanctum Sully has reemerged as a 6-piece electrified unit that combines their many influences to form a unique and authentic sound. From frantic bluegrass licks to spaced-out ambient rock, Sanctum Sully churns it out straight from the heart.
Each summer the Asheville Downtown Association partners with five local nonprofits to sell wristbands at the event. Each group received a grant of $2000. The ADA has given more than $150,000 to area nonprofits through this program. Our June partner is Girls on the Run.
Lots of local beers on tap, wine, soda and water are all available for purchase. Plus plenty of local food vendors to choose from!
