I’ve got the story at Asheville Grit. A snippet:
Three Asheville women with extensive community connections and experience planning and executing festvials are teaming up to create what they hope will be a new signature event for Asheville.
The festival dream team is: Kitty Love, who helped establish the Lexington Avenue Arts and Fun Festival; Jennifer Pickering, founder of LEAF in Black Mountain; and Franzi Charen, founder of the Asheville Grown buy local alliance.
“We’ve been dreaming on this for a little while. We really want tocreate something that is sustainable and resilient and long-lasting,” Pickering said. “We’re trying to develop something that becomes another signature event.”
