Asheville Goombay Festival

The free public event will be held at a new location this year - Downtown Asheville's Roger McGuire Green on Friday and Saturday. The City of Asheville ranks Goombay as one of four local anchor events where families, businesses, and communities from across the Western North Carolina region gather to celebrate the richness and diversity of the African Diaspora. The festival attracts over 10,000 people throughout the weekend and garners national media coverage. Goombay lives up to its West African name meaning of "rhythm or drum" with eclectic sounds, vibrant, multicolored sights and the tantalizing aroma of exotic foods reflecting a multiplicity of cultures and traditions.

Where: 1 W. Pack Square, Asheville, NC 28801

When: Sept. 12: 2 p.m.-10 p.m.
Sept. 13: 10 a.m.-10 p.m.
Sept. 14: 10 a.m.-5 p.m
