Saturday Activities

Since you’re in Asheville for the conference, it would be a shame not to stay for the weekend, right? 😉

While the conference is not officially sponsoring any events, we encourage you to network with other conference goers for activites on Saturday, June 1st! If you're visiting town with a friend, family member, or significant other, you're encouraged to bring them along, too!

Check out some of our ideas below, or suggest your own in our conference Slack #social-plans channel!

Tubing on the French Broad River


Take a 2-3 hour lazy float down the French Broad River, which winds through the heart of Asheville. (Fun fact: the French Broad is one of the oldest rivers in the world and one of very few that flow north!) Wear a swim suit and flip flops or river shoes, and bring your own beverages (cans only) and snacks.

Hiking at Graveyard Fields

Graveyard Fields

Drive south along the Blue Ridge Parkway, stopping occasionally to enjoy scenic overlooks. Then hike to the waterfalls at Graveyard Fields (perhaps eating lunch on the trail) before heading back to town.

Touring Wicked Weed

Wicked Weed

Tour Wicked Weed Brewpub, one of Asheville’s most popular breweries and “the second most visited tourist attraction in Asheville after the Biltmore Estate.”
