Long Man Fest is happening from noon until 8 PM at the Asheville Outdoor Center on October 13, 2012. Long Man Fest features rafting with live music on the riverbanks, festival grounds with bands on two stages, local shopping with artists, nonprofit organizations, small businesses and crafters, activities for the whole family in The Hop Kids Zone, snacks and meals from local food trucks and beautiful views of nature and fall foliage.
Bands scheduled to perform include the Secret B-Sides, Shantavaani, Pierce Edens, John Wilkes Boothe and the Black Toothe, Skunk Ruckus, the Judy Chops and more.
One of the names that The Cherokee People called the French Broad River was ‘Agiqua’. Translated into English, Agiqua (pronounced Ah-geeg-wah) literally means Long Man. It is the third oldest river on Earth, and has flowed through Asheville and the ancient Appalachian Mountains for centuries. Today, the agricultural heritage, musical genius, glorious landscapes, environmental awareness and unique individuals that thrive on the Long Man are unlike any place else on the Planet.
This first-year event is locally-grown and sustainability-focused. All participants, attendees, volunteers, vendors and entertainers are asked to leave all areas better than when they arrived.
