Delectables and Delights: A time of music, drink, desserts and fun in downtown Asheville




Chocolates, cakes, tarts, pastries and more—it doesn’t get any sweeter than this. Well, maybe if you wash it all down with glasses of sparkling wine, beer, and spirits while swaying to the jazz of "One Leg Up".

SWEET is the place to be event On Friday evening, August 22 from 8 - 10 PM before the Grand Tasting on Saturday, August 23. Enjoy dinner at one of the many excellent restaurants in Asheville, but save room for an evening of toothsome confections and sips at the historic Grove Arcade in downtown. Local bakers, chocolatiers, pâtissiers, wine vendors, brewers and distillers will line the corridors of this architectural wonder. The shops of the Grove Arcade will stay open late, giving you the opportunity to shop for handmade crafts, jewelry, furnishings, and more while you indulge. Enjoy the music, the food, and the atmosphere that takes you back to a glamorous time in our city!
