On August 21st from 3:30-6:30pm the West Asheville Tailgate Market is hosting a big Haywood Road block party called 'Summer Jam Festival! It's our way of saying farewell to summer and bringing the whole neighborhood out for one last hurrah before fall.
Jam Fest is a community-oriented festival with music (a jam band, of course!), a bounce house, big raffle prizes, games, contests, food, and so much more!
There are lots of ways to have fun, win prizes, and support the market in the process.
RAFFLE PRIZES - Enter our raffle to win one of over 15 prizes from businesses all around Asheville (view the current list HERE, which is being updated daily). Tickets are $5 per for 1 ticket, or $12 for 3 tickets. All proceeds go toward the growth of the market which is a state non-profit and relies heavily on the support of our community. Get your tickets today!
