Special Events

No detail is too small. No challenge is too large.

Accents on Asheville's seasoned team members are ready to roll-up their sleeves and execute the perfect daytime or evening event that encourages participation, camaraderie and the imagination of your entire group while taking advantage of the full range of Blue Ridge Mountain flavor and flare that groups experience here in Asheville and the surrounding mountains. Our expert inhouse event planners choreograph special and themed events for groups coming to Asheville from the design of the event, to the setup, all the way through the breakdown of the event. We assist groups with venue selection, layout, staging, special seating, casual or elegant and elaborate décor, specialty linens, table centerpieces, audio/visual, gobos, lighting, sound, music, entertainment, menu design, food and beverage catering, staffing, printed menus, and if needed, tent and other event rentals and roundtrip transportation from your group's hotel. Our three most popular special events for groups coming to Asheville are:


Biltmore Estate Evenings

Accents on Asheville can arrange for private after-hour tours of Biltmore House, exclusive dinners and special events in one of the Estate's many private event venues. There are intimate options for small groups, magnificent backdrops for groups as large as 2000 guests, and everything in between. A number of our elite groups choose this exceptional setting for their gala or final night event, they ask us to conceive and fulfill it, and their guests will remember the special moment for years to come.

Private Farm & Ranch Events

Asheville has spectacular outdoor event venues with breathtaking views and open-air and enclosed barns or pavilions that are ideal locations for Appalachian style events in all four seasons. If your group has come here to take advantage of our mountain scenery and culture, then let us take you where can unwind, play lawn games, see farm animals, sample mountain grub, sip local craft beer or moonshine, try our farm-to-table fare, listen to local musicians, all while enjoying a bonfire with s’mores.


Private Brewery Events

Asheville has more breweries per capita than any other American city and our beer flows as steady as our mountain streams, receiving high marks from beer enthusiasts worldwide. We can take your group to a brewery with a private event venue that’s the perfect place for a special evening, one that could feature multiple local draughts, an eclectic reception or dinner menu designed by you but prepared by out catering chefs, as well as a local bluegrass band that will get your guests up and dancing.

Themed Events

Many of our groups don't have the ability to choose one of the exclusive event venues in Asheville and are forced to start with a blank slate in a venue such as a hotel ballroom. If you need help with creativity, our exceptional themed events are completely customized, reflecting the brand or personality of our private and corporate clients. Whether your group is a family, a product, a company or cause, our special events embrace experiences that integrate innovative design with the finest in wine and cocktails, dining, music, entertainment and most importantly, the element of surprise.
