Swannanoa Solstice brings Holiday Cheer with Social Distancing

For the last 18 years, A Swannanoa Solstice has delighted local audiences with its world-class display of folk music and dance at Asheville’s Wortham Center for the Performing Arts. This beloved holiday tradition lights up even the darkest of winter’s days — and 2020, in particular, could use a bit of Solstice’s signature holiday cheer. Presented in partnership with The Swannanoa Gathering at Warren Wilson College, A Swannanoa Solstice comes in two socially distant formats this year: one limited-capacity in-person performance at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 20, and one online concert, which begins at 7 p.m. the same evening, and can be enjoyed at any point in time between then and Dec. 31. Tickets are on sale now.

10 Things To Do With Out of Town Visitors

Your family and/or friends are in town for the holidays - what do you do? Recently someone in my family got married, which meant that some of my relatives from Oregon flew into town. This was their first time in North Carolina, and Asheville so I had to make sure to show them the sights and entertain them while making sure they enjoy the city.
