Barn Day (Tour & Dinner): Since 2014, the ABA has sponsored a guided 3-hour tour of historic barns led by researcher/ historian Taylor Barnhill. After the tour, participants are treated to a dinner and local music at a rustic location. Stay tuned for updates on a date in 2021 pending COVID restrictions. We hope to schedule one this year in the fall with new barns and a new dinner location.

Pastoral Palette Art Gala: Partnering with the artists of The Saints of Paint in Asheville, the ABA hosts a Friday evening Gala with light food and wine while participants browse and buy paintings of rural landscapes. Wonderful art combined with delicious food and drink makes for an truly enjoyable evening! Plans are to schedule this event for late summer or early fall in 2021 if COVID restrictions are lifted.
