Asheville Hosts N.C.'s US Twestival Feb. 12

UPDATE: Looks like the Twestival is happening at Windows on the Park downtown.

There'll be food, $1 beer, live music and silent auctions.
  • Thursday 12 February 2009
  • 6 - 11 p.m.
  • $10 donation
Send email to avltwestival at gmaildotcom for details or to talk to someone about being a sponsor for the event.

Some Twestival organizers are filming a charity:water benefit video in Pritchard Park at 11:30 a.m. and 3 p.m tomorrow (Sat. Feb. 7). A $5 donation gets you a spot in the video.

Read more about how to help with the video here.


It's still in the works, but our city's Twitterers are hosting the Asheville US Twestival later this month. If you went to last month's rockin' Tweetup you know, as Twitterer June Allison pointed out, that Asheville Tweets like a city five times its size.

The Twestival will be everything the Tweetup was, only bigger, with booze and benefitting a great cause, charity:water. Find out more about charity:water and the Twestival here.

Look for more details here on BA as they develop, but mark Thursday, Feb. 12 on your social calendars now.

If you're interested in sponsorship/donations for a good cause (and for good networking with local techies, nerds and media types), contact Jose or June.

A pre-bash Tweetup is tonight at 8 p.m. at the French Broad Chocolate Lounge downtown.

More info on the Twestival coming soon!

The tweet up was my first, but very fun! Kudos for the Twestival, another example of Asheville being so much more than just a place to live/work/die.
