On the Second Saturday of each month, Asheville’s River Arts District holds gallery walks with demonstrations, workshops, live music, wine tastings, delicious food, and more. Come out on Oct. 10 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Visitors meander the mile-long district and discover all that the “RAD” has to offer. There are more than 200 artists in the 22 buildings throughout the district. Many of them open during this monthly event to describe or show their techniques and share their inspirations.

There will be no trolley service on Second Saturdays for the time being, due to coronavirus concerns. Ample free parking is available in the district and walkability is increasing every week with the greenway expansion underway.

Both in person and virtual events are happening for Second Saturday. Some events will be streaming online.

As always, we invite everyone to peruse our website, riverartsdistrict.com to have a virtual visit, which is a great jumping off point to explore Asheville’s art community, whether for educational purposes, entertainment, or if you’re looking for a great piece of art for your home or business.

Many studios and galleries are open and welcoming visitors throughout the month, following county and state guidelines. To see at some of the artist’s open hours, visit https://www.riverartsdistrict.com/temporary-hours-by-day/.
