The free festival showcases the terrain, environment, and unique culture of Asheville, NC and the surrounding mountains. The Mountain Sports Festival is organized by a volunteer group of community oriented citizens dedicated to providing a well balanced series of events and music that encourage participation on all levels.
Held annually on Memorial Day Weekend, 2018 will mark the 18th Annual Mountain Sports Festival. Every year, we build on our strong community base and bring you a wide variety of events in the mountains, throughout town, and on the river. An amazing array of musical talent, with acts and staging far better than most free festivals, will perform each day, and local beer, cider, and food vendors will be available to fill your belly.
Thanks to our amazing sponsors and our hardworking and dedicated volunteer Board of Directors as well as community volunteers, our nonprofit festival continues to remain free to the thousands of attendees (over 8,000 in 2017) each year! We look forward to seeing you in Carrier Park on Memorial Day Weekend to celebrate 18 years of Mountain Sports Festival!
