The annual Mountain Sports Festival is a free, non-profit festival that draws over 8,000 attendees to Asheville's very popular Carrier Park. As the name suggests, it is a weekend that is full of sporting events in addition to live music, local food, and beer. The three-day festival is conveniently located to the French Broad River and the Mellowdrome, the 498m asphalt oval that was formerly known as the Asheville Motor Speedway.
Music lineups for genres of Jazz, Blues, Bluegrass, Rock and Funk take place throughout the weekend and food, beverage and outdoor gear vendors are on site.
