The Asheville Downtown Association today announced the lineup for the Virtual Fourth of July Concert, presented by Ingles Markets. The online concert will air Saturday, July 4 beginning at 4pm and feature eight local artists taking the stage at four venues across Asheville.
Due to the need for physical distancing posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, following guidance from Buncombe County and State health officials, there will be no public fireworks display. While we would love to produce a downtown festival for our neighbors, we understand that the health and safety of our community is of the utmost importance.
“Thanks to the generous support from our partners, we’re able to put some of our favorite artists back to work at some of our favorite venues,” said Meghan Rogers, executive director for the Asheville Downtown Association.
