A new look for the Community Calendar

From art exhibitions to spiritual gatherings, lectures, environmental meetings, theatrical productions and book groups, the Xpress Community Calendar reflects Asheville and Western North Carolina’s vibrant, diverse and amazingly active community.

With the new-and-improved Community Calendar interface, exploring activities within your interest has never been easier. Search events by section — including food, garden, family, art and wellness (to name just a few) — by date, keyword and/or region.

Share, tweet and comment on events! Take a look and let us know what you think by e-mailing calendar@mountainx.com, or comment below.

Thanks for reading through to the end…

We share your inclination to get the whole story. For the past 25 years, Xpress has been committed to in-depth, balanced reporting about the greater Asheville area. We want everyone to have access to our stories. That’s a big part of why we've never charged for the paper or put up a paywall.

We’re pretty sure that you know journalism faces big challenges these days. Advertising no longer pays the whole cost. Media outlets around the country are asking their readers to chip in. Xpress needs help, too. We hope you’ll consider signing up to be a member of Xpress. For as little as $5 a month — the cost of a craft beer or kombucha — you can help keep local journalism strong. It only takes a moment.

Before you comment

The comments section is here to provide a platform for civil dialogue on the issues we face together as a local community. Xpress is committed to offering this platform for all voices, but when the tone of the discussion gets nasty or strays off topic, we believe many people choose not to participate. Xpress editors are determined to moderate comments to ensure a constructive interchange is maintained. All comments judged not to be in keeping with the spirit of civil discourse will be removed and repeat violators will be banned. See here for our terms of service. Thank you for being part of this effort to promote respectful discussion.

    Hi Usher73,

    To search events by date go to http://www.mountainx.com/events then click on “Events” (Sections/Map/Events).

    An “Advanced Search” button (for specific date ranges) will be up by the end of the week.

    Thanks, I tried “Events”, but can’t see a way to choose a date.

    I’m coming to Asheville this weekend, from Detroit, stopping by Raleigh to pick up a friend.

    I’m coming to Asheville this weekend from Detroit, stopping by Raleigh to pick up a friend. We’ll look for a copy of the Express when we get there.
