ASHEVILLE BARNAROO

ASHEVILLE BARNAROO Voted WNC's # 3 camping festival by Mountain Xpress Magazine Readers. Located at Frannys Farm. BARNAROO was started by Andrew Scotchie and friends in 2009. Benefiting the Asheville Music School
(21)

The festival began when a group of young adults realized they could not get into Bonnaroo Festival, and decided to create their own. From there, the ASHEVILLE BARNAROO Festival ran for several years on the Andrew Scotchie family land in Weaverville, NC, welcoming friends and musicians from near and far. In 2012 the festival moved to Franny's Farm in Leicester. It was time to expand the experience and invite even more friends. BARNAROO is a regional festival (camping optional) that celebrates the spirit of regional and local rock and roll. A portion of festival proceeds benefits Asheville Music School, and so does our awesome annual silent auction! We're ready with a stellar lineup for 2016. Get ready to ROCK THE BARN at Franny's Farm!!!!!!!!!

Hello Barnaroo family! Just a reminder that the festival is taking the fall of 2019 off at Franny's Farm. Do not fear , the event will return to the little bowl of heaven in Leicester.
The decision to take this year off was a unanimous among festival founder Andrew Scotchie and property owner Frances Tacy / festival crew. Scotchie has been touring the county non stop with his band, taking part in other AVL community events and Frances is expanding her hemp business across the southeast.
Having some time to regroup / build a larger team will produce the best festival experience ever for our amazing fans , sponsors, bands and families.
Who do YOU want to see at the next Asheville Barnaroo ? Inbox us or comment below ! Interested in joining our team / helping make the next fest the best yet ? Email us at [email protected] or inbox us on FB.
Thank you for the continued support. We could be on this journey without our lovely sponsors , volunteers , bands and everyone who has been behind the goal of barnaroo since the beginning.

Join us in wishing Franny happy birthday on this beautiful Friday !

Franny Tacy and I go back a bit and I am SO glad she’s one of my KNOW Book + Tribe sisters! A few years back I photographed she and her family, and models for the farm launch. Pre-eco cabins, pre-CBD, pre-events and we stood on her property at sunset and looked around at the property discussing possibility. We talked about how it would make an AMAZING wedding venue and that in a few short (long) years, they could be a known and stable venue here in Asheville for weddings. We cheersed and laughed and enjoyed the evening. Frances, I am so stinking proud of you!! Not only have you created an incredible events venue but you are leading the way in hemp, and franchising like a BOSS! FRANCHISING! I am blown away by your tenacity, visioning, and heart almost daily! I love you, girl! #knowtribeavl #knowtribeonthe828

Hello Asheville Barnaroo family ! We wanted to take a moment to give you some important updates.
Coming October 5th the festival will be proudly hosting a fall fundraiser/day festival for Asheville Music School in beautiful downtown Asheville at The Asheville Masonic Temple that will feature some of our favorite local/regional bands, vendors, artists, beer/food and fun for the whole family.
There has been a unanimous decision to take this season off from the 3 day festival at Franny's Farm and return stronger than ever in fall 2020 (stay tuned for dates!). The break from the farm this year is simply because of increased demands in other business ventures and an opportunity to build a larger team that can propel the festival even further. Thank you to all our amazing sponsors, family and friends who stand strongly behind the AVL Barnaroo mission. We wouldn't be here without you ! See you soon friends !

Hello. Wondering if you have announced dates for next year's festival or, if not, when you might be? Thanks
Asheville Barnaroo 2017 We didn't know what to expect. Music line up was fantastic. Unbelievable artisan vendors featuring all organic materials, hand made clothes & farm to table food trucks. The whole place was delightful & kid friendly. Camping was good too. We would definitely go back.
I'm hoping this is OK to post here. Unfortunately, my husband and I will no longer be able to attend this weekend.🙁 We have 3 weekend passes available, $55 each. PM me if you are interested!
Have two weekend passes with camping we sadly cannot use this weekend. Will sell for $100 (for both)!!
I have one weekend pass for sale!!! I bought it in June. But this weekend was a blackout, no request off, for work and I can't go! Plus I injured my back and legs and camping just isn't in my near future. Help a momma out and buy my ticket for 65.00 for the whole weekend with Camping!!! I'd really appreciate it!
I am selling 2 weekend barn burner tickets for $50 each. Please PM if interested
Is this a Kid friendly event? I've got a little who wants to attend?
When will vendors hear back? Still waiting for confirmation...
We're really looking forward to spending the weekend at Asheville Barnaroo!! If you haven't already, get your tickets today and plan to join us!!!
Hmmm...I thinking
Getting psyched for the fest! Check out AMS Rock Band, Minør, at LEAF Downtown 2017. Crushing some Frankenstein!
We'll be there. With bells on. Guess where we'll attach those bells?
