The festival returns to Hot Springs Campground & Resort Friday-Sunday, May 5-7.
Music from the ’80s and ’90s, a silent auction and raffle, and dressed up dancing are all on the agenda at Francine Delany New School for Children’s upcoming fundraiser. The event is at Isis on Friday, Feb. 3.
It’s official. Festival season is here, marked by two favorite local spring celebrations. Both show boatloads of love for the French Broad River: RiverLink’s RiverMusic series, which began in 2012, and French Broad River Festival, now in its 18th year of raising river awareness.
That fête returns with three days full of family-friendly music, art, camping and outdoor recreation from Friday-Sunday, May 2-4.
With temperatures set to be in the high ‘70s and the river running high, it’s all systems go for the Hot Springs-based music and rafting festival.
The 14th Annual French Broad River Festival benefitted from perfect weather, giving its colorful people, artists and musicians plenty of opportunities to unwind, including this art project beside the main stage.
