Ruts! The Oregon Trail Experience
Ruts! The Oregon Trail Experience is premiering at the Asheville Fringe Festival. I talked with writer/director Debbie Harbin and composer Paul Obarowski about their inspiration, their own experiences of the game, what we can expect from the performance, and why you should be there--even it you've never played The Oregon Trail.

Whether you're still recovering or still partying, Asheville Grit has your upcoming weekend and week planned. Happy 2016, revelers!

Asheville Vaudeville's end of year extravaganza is happening this Saturday, 12/19, and is sure to be filled with weirdness and wonder.

To kick off their call to artists for the 2016 festival, Asheville's Fringe Fest is having a Summer Freak Out fundraising event at New Mountain. The celebration aims at bringing Fringe artists and fans together for an entertaining and very Fringey evening.

Sure it might be rainy and cold out. We may even get a little snow (gasp!). But there is still a ton to do around town no matter what and we've listed just a few.

Why should you go to a true Asheville Oddity of a festival showcasing performances from artists from all over the world and that has been going on in our little town for 13 years? We will tell you.

Do you know that the Asheville Fringe Arts Festival has been going on for over a decade and showcases local and international artists in all sorts of mediums? We didn't either.
