Asheville Outlets and Give to the Music will host a Summer Camp Expo & Busker Event on Saturday, March 25, 2017 from 12 noon to 3 p.m. at Asheville Outlets. This year the Expo will also feature a Taste of Asheville Outlets. The Expo will give families the opportunity to view booths and displays and meet representatives from traditional overnight camps, sports camps, arts camps, day camps, academic camps and more, while featuring family-fun entertainment including live busker (street performers) music, strolling magic, balloon art, face painting and crafts. The event is free and open to the public.

“In addition to the Summer Camp Expo & Busker Event, we are looking forward to showcasing the delicious food offerings at the center through our special Taste of Asheville Outlets,” said Sharon Morgan, General Manager, Asheville Outlets. “As attendees enjoy entertainment and learn more about area camp offerings, they will also delight in food and snack tastings from Acropolis Pizza Café, Woody’s Steaks & Wings, China Max, Starbucks, Beef Jerky Outlet, Le Creuset, Lindt Chocolate Shop and Auntie Anne’s Pretzels,” she continued.

The Second Annual Summer Camp Expo & Busker Event also provides a way to give back to the local community. “We are so excited to team up with Asheville Outlets on this event,” said Anne Coombs, Executive Director, Give to the Music. “Not only will this event be fun for the entire family, but 100% of the booth proceeds will help fund private music lessons, performance classes, summer camps and instruments for children attending Music Academy, Rock Academy, local high schools and other nonprofit organizations,” she continued.  With the addition of the Busker Event, Give to the Music will further highlight the incredible musical talent in the Asheville area. 

Live performances include: The Music Academy, Rock Academy, Spintastic Sounds and NC Mountain Music.
