Calling all art-lovers: Burners & BBQ event starts May 19

We are always excited to work with our community and showcase the artists that paint our one-of-a-kind Asheville canvas. For our new website, Asheville Premier Transportation shot photos in one of our favorite new artist hubs in the city – Foundy Street. This once abandoned site has been brought to colorful light thanks to the largest muralist event in the state of North Carolina, “Burners & BBQ.”

The annual non-profit event, held this year from May 19 -21, features over 30 artists from around the nation as they bring their creativity to this corner of the River Arts District, creating stunning street art, graffiti, and murals. Last year alone, artists painted over 15,000 square feet of street canvas, imprinting Foundy Street as a destination for artists and art lovers around the nation.

“We hope to further solidify its reputation as a beautiful outdoor gallery while simultaneously promoting the River Arts District as a cultural landmark and the proud home of Asheville’s art community,” said festival organizers. “By bringing these artists together and executing a project of this scope and quality, we hope to provide our city with art that inspires others to do the same and specifically gives Asheville’s youth something ambitious they can aspire to.”

Kick-off the weekend Friday, May, 19 at 7 p.m. at the Foundy St. Wedge Brewery for an official art opening, artists meet and greet and live performances. Beers will be flowing all weekend and of course, BBQ by 12 Bones. Donations are also being accepted at

Asheville Leaf Season, Fall Color Tours

Asheville Leaf Season is in full effect as I write this. Folks have traveled from all over the Country to visit the mountains of Western North Carolina and see the beautiful leaves. The Blue Ridge Parkway is the most popular destination, but there are plenty of other little trips that you can take. For example, you can take a short trip to Brevard and Looking Glass Falls. Or you can visit the beautiful Chimney Rock and Lake Lure area.

Asheville Premier Transportation offers Fall Color Tours in Asheville and Western North Carolina. The price depends on how many people and how long of a tour you want. The Town Car can accommodate up to 4 people, and we have other networked drivers who have more room for more leaf peepers. Give us a call at 828-407-0221 and let us arrange a Fall Color Tour for you!

Ty Pennington in Waynesville and Asheville NC!

Every now and then I get to drive a celebrity around town. Of course there are many celebrities coming to the area. Some want to stay incognito, and others are here in public, and sometimes with a mission to accomplish. Ty Pennington recently came to the Asheville area to work on a community project in Haywood County where they are turning the old Hazelwood Prison in Waynesville into a shelter and soup kitchen. This is a Haywood Pathways Project. Asheville Premier Transportation has the pleasure of transporting this wonderful person around while he was in town. Thank you for the opportunity!
