Three great annual events all happening next weekend, May 5 & 6

May 5th & 6th truly kick off the excitement of the festival season with three great annual events

It is absolutely wonderful to entertain guests in Hendersonville, NC with more festivals, more cultural events, and more fun every year.  Here are the special events you can’t miss next weekend:

  • May 5th — Green River Adventures Spring Bash (music, food, beer) in downtown Saluda
  • May 6th — Bearwallow Beast 5k/Honey and Hops Festival (music, honey, beer) at the top of Bearwallow Mountain
  • May 6th — Billy Jonas performs at the Flat Rock Playhouse to benefit the Playhouse YouTheatre

If you like outdoor music festivals and you’ve never seen Shannon Whitworth, check out the Green River Adventures Spring Bash.  It is one of two events every year that turn the little town of Saluda into the area’s best party.  Shannon and her band will entertain you while you and your family enjoy all that Main Street Saluda has to offer.  Be sure to thank the owners of Green River Adventures who host the event with help from Blue Gypsy and Highland Brewing.

If you can run three miles uphill and are looking for an athletic challenge,  you can try the Bearwallow Beast 5k or you can go to the Honey & Hops festival and cheer on the race finishers.  Brushfire Stankgrass will be performing some bluegrass music with a tremendous mountain view all around.  Enjoy the beauty of Western North Carolina and support Carolina Mountain Land Conservancy at the same time.

If you have kids that like live music, Billy Jonas will be the main attraction at the Flat Rock Playhouse on Saturday evening.  Billy is famous for being the most creative musician you will ever see.  Audience participation is required and a great time is guaranteed.  Come support the YouTheatre and have a memorable evening with the entire family.

There’s other stuff going on too!  Call the Claddagh Inn for more ideas about enjoying a fun weekend in Hendersonville.
