Xpand Fest is a free community event held in June every year that highlights innovation and arts as essential tools for sustainable development. We support those belief by uniting makers of today who are creating a powerful platform for social change.
Xpand Fest was created to expand your vision of all art disciplines and to celebrate their profound societal impact locally and globally. Xpand Fest provides a platform for Asheville to examine the imperceptible creativity around and how we are using arts and the art of making to improve our own community. Xpand Fest will include information on the Sustainable Development Goals created at the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit and will highlight local organizations that are making conscious business decision to better our community.
