Press release from event organizers:

Bioflyer Productions presents its 4th Annual Faerie Arts Festival on November 11 once again in the beautiful ballroom of the Renaissance Hotel in downtown Asheville. The event celebrates the holiday season with some of the regions best artists and musicians.

This year will be an evening only adult extravaganza (7-11pm) entitled “Goth Faerie Ball.” DJ Malinalli will be playing dance rhythms with special lights and sound. Sarah Merrell will be returning with another collection of the best fashion designers and models in WNC. There will be organic chocolate, drinks, and local arts and crafts. Last year’s event was nearly sold out so purchasing tickets early is strongly recommended.

The event is sponsored by Wicked Weed Brewing of Asheville and is an annual fundraiser for Eblen Charities, one of the area’s most generous family service organizations. Advance Tickets are $14 ($20 day of event). More info and tickets on website: https://bioflyer.wordpress.com

In the words of internationally acclaimed faerie artist, Brian Froud: “To dress as a faerie, donning wings, is to actively join in the dance, to be connected to creative spirit. Graceful or ecstatic dance; the radiant, rhythmic heartbeat; friendship; music; all these move easily across the boundaries, transcending language, race, and time.”
