Downtown After 5 in Asheville


Music and fun every third Friday

Ventana Asheville is located in the Blue Ridge mountains with spectacular views and endless possibilities. Surrounded by deep forests and clean fresh-water springs, you can enjoy the luxury and beauty of nature from your own home. With the beauty of the mountains at your fingertips, you also have dramatic views of downtown Asheville. Where else can you have the exclusivity of a mountain lifestyle and the convenience of an eclectic downtown such as Asheville? One of the perks of living so close to Downtown Asheville is the convenience of all the events that are hosted. Ventana residents are only minutes away from eclectic downtown Asheville, where they can enjoy excellent dining, art, shopping, and entertainment all in one place. Ventana Asheville is only minutes away from the Downtown after 5 that takes place every third Friday of the month!

The Asheville Downtown Association announced the lineup for the 27th season of Downtown After 5, presented by Prestige Subaru. Taking place the third Friday of the month from May through September from 5-9pm on North Lexington Avenue, Downtown After 5 is always free and open to the public.

AUGUST 21, 2015:

Tony Furtado Band (

Tony Furtado has lived primarily on the road for the last two decades. He’s been called a genius on banjo and slide guitar, and his own creative interpretation-hybrid of Americana and indie folk/rock is engaging and captivating. Onstage, whether playing with a band or solo, he owns the room, mixing stories of his travels with musicianship that is off the charts.

Brushfire Stankgrass (

Brushfire Stankgrass has significant crossover appeal with bluegrass/newgrass and jam rock fans alike, showcasing their “modern mountain fusion” with a dynamic live show and two award-winning albums. Stankgrass blends the traditional with a grassy fusion inflected by analog-electronics and a hard-hitting rhythm section.
