2-10pm Fri, 10am-10pm Sat, TBA Sun – Roger Mcguire Green: Pack Place, Asheville, NC
Tired of the same-old festival routine? Try Goombay. It’s named after a skin-covered drum, and it’s held each year to celebrate good times in the African-Caribbean way. Expect lots of colorful robes and high headdresses. It’s okay if you don’t have a native costume. Make something up or come as you are and get down to live bands groovin’ out the funk, reggae, gospel, and soul. There will be lots of opportunities to check out traditional food as well.
