Vermont Ave Halloween Funds

It's Halloween in West Asheville! We are facing financial challenges since the City of Asheville has raised the fee for our permit to $500 plus additional police officers on duty.  To keep this wonderful tradition for the thousands of kids each year, we need your help.

The extra expense this year will cut into our additional fundraising which also provides families with more candy which neighbors rally around to donate. If you are unfamiliar with the street closing of Vermont Ave., in West Asheville, Google it! You'll see hundreds of pictures of costumed families walking through the neighborhood, traffic free. The evening is made possible by volunteers setting up barricades and dutifully handling them while families, artists, and musicians enjoy a memorable Halloween evening.

Please consider helping. The community has created a great tradition which creates a safe and family-centered event, and thousands enjoy each year. Also, check our website for other ways you can help. There is information regarding volunteer opportunities and tax-deductible donations for Sponsorships.
