Event description

Description

Celebrate the turning of the leaves at this FREE family festival with games, face painting, popcorn, cotton candy, and fun for all ages. There's nothing quite like fall in the North Carolina mountains -- and nothing quite like enjoying it next to Lake Julian. (And it's all FREE!)

This year's Fall Festival features a Curious George theme. Dress as your favorite children's book character (get creative!) and enter the costume contest at 1:00 for a great prize.

Festival games include an obstacle course, water balloon toss, scavenger hunt, ring toss, baseball target, foam bow and arrow, and alphabet walk. Free face painting, popcorn, cotton candy, and storytelling areas will be set up within Lake Julian Road, the main loop in in the park. Regular park amenities including the pirate-themed playground (installed in 2018), volleyball, horseshoes, picnic tables, walking trails, and disc golf are also accessible at no cost.

Fishing, paddleboats, water trikes, and a boat launch are available for a small fee. Food will be offered for purchase from Frank and Steins Hot Dogs, Kona Ice of Asheville, and Papa John's - Asheville/Hendersonville. Publix has provided supplies for a free cupcake decorating station. Free water stations are sponsored by Mountain Valley Water Asheville.

Other stations include Asheville Museum of Science (learning activities), Buncombe County Fire Marshal (kids’ fire house), Skyland/South Buncombe Library (story time), Buncombe County Sheriff's Office (BEAR CAT tactical vehicle and K9 handler), Lakeview Putt and Play, LLC (mini golf), Skyland Fire and Rescue (fire engine), Smokey Bear and the U.S. Forest Service (outdoor education), and WNC Safe Kids North Carolina (safety information).

The Fall Festival at Lake Julian Park is produced by Buncombe County Recreation Services.
