Bele Chere: Everything you need to know on one page

Bele Chere is a festival of many colors. So it’s natural for Xpress to offer coverage that’s equally nuanced. Read on for quick routes to your preferred online format. (And of course, if you’re the classic paper-and-ink type, we’ve got festival guides on almost every block downtown with a map, band bios, food and shopping tips and more.)


If you just need a quick snapshot of a map, we’ve got that for you.

Mobile Bele Chere Guide:
Schedules (adjusted in real-time to delays or changes), information on performers, vendors, and more.
It’s super fast and looks good on your phone.

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.
