What to expect?
The Venture Local Street Fair cultivates a community of localists. By closing off both Buxton and Banks Ave. in the South Slope of downtown Asheville, we come together to create a supportive environment where small businesses grow. Watch as makers, artists, collectors, musicians, chefs, brewers, entertainers and inventors magically transform the streets into a bustling, family-friendly, mini-city of discovery. Engage with your ingenious neighbors and support our local economy. Regional small business resources will be showcased for those inspired to embark on or expand their own ideas.
You will also find delectable eats and drinks & some of our best food trucks. Throughout the fair discover interactive DIY booths, curiosities and kid’s activities. Businesses in the area will provide festive programming including Sow True Seed’s Garlic Fest, Empyrean Arts trapeze classes, French Broad Chocolate Factory tours, local music and a myriad of tastings and workshops.
Roam the streets of the South Slope, some of our region’s finest talent awaits you.
