June of 2022 was a watershed moment: 450 friends from around the country came together with world-class thinkers and doers like Fareed Zakaria, Jon Meacham and Gov. Christine Todd Whitman. Our crew included writers, scientists, film-makers and chefs. We had Grammy winners, a National Book Award winning author, and the freshly-minted James Beard Award Winning "Top Restaurant in America". Asheville Ideas Fest is helping to ensure that Asheville will be known for our intellect and culture just as much as our food and craft beverage scenes. You can think of Asheville Ideas Fest as a four-day, intellectually focused vacation paired with amazing music, outdoor recreation, great food and some of our favorite craft beers. Our third annual Asheville Ideas Fest will take place June 17-20, 2024. Please make plans to join us. Let’s ensure you don’t miss a thing!
