FESTIVALS & TAILGATE MARKETS
The Farmstead loves to travel to events in the community. We have a wide range of booths that we can bring to your event. We have facilitated kids booths with activities ranging from painting, building, making seed balls, bubbles, chalk, nature touch table from the cove, and much more! We have been lucky enough to be at the West Asheville Tailgate Market, Xpand Fest, Riverlink's Earth Day Festival, and most recently the Dogwood Alliances Woods and Wild story telling festival.
If you have a festival, tailgate market, or kid oriented event consider having the Farmstead host a booth designed specifically for your event to engage your attendees!
