ASHEVILLE – OCTOBER- As you probably already know, this is the time of the year where nature paints our mountain landscape gloriously! Many visitors arrive on the scene. The LEAF FESTIVAL opens the way to creative pursuits and more. And the Neighborhood Advisory Committee is hosting the first Asheville Festival of Neighborhoods on Sunday, October 27, 2013.
We are excited to see neighborhood groups and associations playing a part in this event.
The festival was conceived to recognize and learn more about Asheville’s vibrant neighborhoods and to foster cross-communication. Participants are encouraged to bring a display that tells the community more about their neighborhood, including the neighborhood boundary, population, history, community achievements and details about their neighborhood organization.
The program will also feature a slideshow, so participants will to share photos of their neighborhood.

I expect a great deal of participation from Asheville’s Pocket Neighborhoods as per one of my earlier posts.
“This is just a great way for neighborhoods to get together and showcase what they are doing,” says NAC member Elaine Poovey. “And we feel like this will be a valuable way to address some of our mutual community concerns.”
INFO: The first Festival of Neighborhoods will take place at UNC Asheville’s Sherrill Center on Sunday, October 27, 2013 at 3 p.m. To sign up to represent your neighborhood, respond by August 31 to Elaine Poovey at email@example.com and put Festival of Neighborhoods in the subject line.
