Kick off Father’s Day weekend with the Better Dads Festival taking place on June 17 in downtown Asheville. This free, family-friendly event welcomes men, women, and children from Asheville's diverse communities to come explore and celebrate fatherhood in all its forms. Live music, dance, games, costumes, drumming, storytelling, crafts, a poetry slam, and a dress-your-dad photo booth will provide opportunities to play together. Community speakers will invite everyone (festival goers0 to consider how men show up in their lives, the challenges they face, and the many possibilities that exist. For those seeking deeper connection, there will be sharing circles. Musical guests will include LYRIC (who performs with her father), Billy Jonas, and David LaMotte. Come join us for the music and the play and the zest of community. www.BetterDadsFestival.com
