Featuring two-and-a-half days of great live music, the White Squirrel Festival in Downtown Brevard, NC is the perfect way to experience everything this charming mountain community has to offer. Best of all it's FREE! Created to enhance and develop the business district of downtown, the event has evolved into one of the premier music festivals in the southeast featuring national and regional artists such as Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors, George Porter, Jr., Scythian, Steep Canyon Rangers, Jupiter Coyote and many others. It has also earned the reputation for showcasing many undiscovered artists and utilizing the abundant talent in the region. Whether it is Jazz, Bluegrass, Singer-Songwriter or Rock and Roll, the eclectic music in this beautiful setting provides something for everyone.

Experience two-and-a-half days of free concerts right on Main Street, plus over eight blocks of street vendors, food vendors, merchants, artists, craftsmen, potters, painters, games, kid's activities and loads of plain old-fashioned fun!

One of the highlights of the festival is the Squirrel Box Derby down Jailhouse Hill on Saturday featuring homemade derby cars! If you want to enter a car, registration can be found at squirrelboxderby.com, or you can just come as a spectator!
