Taste of Asheville to Celebrate City's Culinary Spirit
Sample the city's culinary spirit at the 11th annual Taste of Asheville on Thursday, Nov. 21 at The Venue in downtown Asheville.
The Taste of Asheville, hosted by AIR and presented by the Cheney Brothers, brings over 40 of Asheville's famed independent restaurants together under one roof for an unforgettable evening of sampling small bites, craft beverages and music.
"What makes Taste of Asheville so unique is that it is truly a celebration for our local community," said Jane Anderson, AIR Executive Director. "It is not only hosted by our local restaurants, but it's a way to bring us all together as neighbors to celebrate another incredible year."
From award-winning chefs and world renowned restaurants, to our favorite neighborhood nooks and homegrown hideaways – The Taste of Asheville is a celebration of all flavors.
"I'm always amazed by the new restaurants that join Taste of Asheville every year," Anderson said. "Our organization grows every year with the addition of new restaurants in Asheville, so even if you have joined us in the past, there is always something new and exciting to try."
This event not only entertains the taste buds, this year the tastes will be accompanied by some amazing tunes with famed Asheville artists JBOT (Josh Blake Organ Trio) and Free Champagne performing throughout the evening.
The evening is one of the largest fundraisers of the year to support the work of the AIR - a group of over 150 locally owned, independent restaurants that serve the flourishing food scene of Asheville.
As one of the largest organization of independent restaurants in the country, AIR is dedicated to keeping Asheville's food scene eclectic, authentic and flavorful. This diverse community of restaurants and restaurateurs range from large to small and fine to casual dining, each bringing their own personality and talents to our vibrant mountain city.
