The 25th Annual Plum Hollow Festival 

(Always the LAST weekend in May every year!)


Since the transition of claw hammer to the finger picks, bluegrass has gone through many exciting changes. The Plum Hollow Alternative Bluegrass Festival is dedicated to the innovations made by creative artists breaking new ground with an old music.

New Grass, Grunge Grass, Jazz Grass, Bluegrass Rock & Roll (and other grassy pastures not yet discovered) are all a part of Alternative Bluegrass. Our goal (besides having a great party) is to also bring together the music industry in our region (VA, TN, SC, NC, GA) to showcase this new format of music to music buyers, radio stations, record labels and other industry related groups.

White Squirrel Festival
May 26 – May 28 all-day


Featuring two-and-a-half days of great live music, the White Squirrel Festival in Downtown Brevard, NC is the perfect way to experience everything this charming mountain community has to offer.  Best of all it’s FREE!

Whether it is Jazz, Bluegrass, Singer-Songwriter or Rock and Roll, the eclectic music in this beautiful setting provides something for everyone.

Got a knack for photography? Then grab your camera and take a few snaps of our most famous residents… Brevard’s very own white squirrels. They scamper all over this area, and we’ll even show you where to see them! Already have a great shot of one of these fuzzy little critters? Then submit it in our White Squirrel Photo Contest.

And speaking of scampering, be sure to check out the 5K and 10K White Squirrel races sponsored by the Brevard Rotary Club. Runners from the entire southeast love to go nuts in the cool morning mountain air at 2500 ft. It’s all happening in beautiful downtown Brevard, voted one of the “Top 10 Coolest Small Towns in America” by Budget Travel, and in 2013 Outdoor Magazine listed Brevard as one of the top 5 places to raise outdoorsy kids.  From festivals to waterfalls to hiking and biking, you can find it all this Memorial Day weekend in downtown Brevard, NC.
