Celebrate Fatherhood with the Better Dads Festival

Celebrate fatherhood at the Better Dads Festival with food, music, dance, games, costumes, storytelling, and more! This free, family-friendly event welcomes men, women, and children from Asheville's diverse communities to come and explore fatherhood in all its forms. Comunity speakers will invite everyone in the festival to consider how men show up in their lives, the challenges they face, and the many possibilities that exist. It's taking place on Saturday, June 17th from noon - 9:30pm at the Roger McGuire Green in Pack Square Park.  For more information about this festival, visit
