Smart Bets: Montford Music & Arts Festival

The Montford Music & Arts Festival has been doing what many of our much-loved local fests end up going: growing bigger than its neighborhood. While all of its acts (and this year, there are more than a dozen) have ties to the historic neighborhood, its lineup draws in folks from beyond the Montford area. With two stages of music, a huge variety of artists of all ilks and food from some of Asheville’s favorite vendors, the free fun starts Saturday, May 18 at 10 a.m. and goes through 7 p.m. Full details and schedule at
