Shindig On The Green is an offshoot of the world famous Mountain Dance and Folk Festival – the oldest, continuously running folk festival in the nation. Formed in 1967, Shindig On The Green was founded as a place for folk musicians to gather and play on summer Saturday nights. As you can imagine, this sort of get together acquired not only musicians but also audiences – and so it has continued to this day with tens of thousands of people from all over the world coming to attend each year.
Scheduled to occur at Roger McGuire Green at Pack Square Park, downtown Asheville, NC on Saturday nights, sundown, starting on June 28 and continuing through August:
June 28th – July 5th, 12th, and 19th – August 9th, 16th, 23rd, and the 30th
As always, Shindig On The Green is FREE. Come to watch, come to dance, or bring your instrument and join in the music! Shindig On The Green is an informal, good time of families, friends, with music, good eats, stars overhead, and lawn chairs and blankets on the grass.
Shindig On The Green features both a stage show and informal jam sessions around the park as well as concessions from Okie Dokies’ Smokehouse and The Hop Ice Cream Cafe. So come on out and support your love of this wonderful music and the growth of the awareness for the cultural heritage of the region!
