Asheville’s new event, Chow Chow, is a multi-day immersive experience exploring the unique community of creative makers around the city’s table—from growers and farmers to brewers and chefs to crafts people and artists. Scheduled September 12-15, 2019, the festival celebrates both the vibrancy of Asheville, NC’s culinary scene as well as the many diverse hands that come together to create the colorful flavors of this corner of Southern Appalachia.
Farm dinners, tours and brunches, chef demonstrations, tastings and grand tastings, community yoga, seminars, live music, artists in action, hands-on activities and panel discussions will bring the festival to life amidst the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains. A non-profit 501C3 organization, Chow Chow is also partnering with MANNA FoodBank raising awareness for its children’s backpack program. The festival is presented by Kimpton Hotel Arras.
