The Mountain Sports Festival returns with an impressive lineup to entice any pro or amateur athlete to test themselves in mountain sports. The 3-day festival brings in over 15,000 visitors and competitors in Asheville, the center of the East Coast outdoor life. Along with the competition, athletes and spectators alike will find plenty of action at the Festival Village at Carrier Park, located along the French Broad River in Asheville.

Located in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountain region of the Appalachians, Asheville is the venue for a long list of competitive events coupled with entertainment, demos and exhibitors. Many sports festivals offer competition, but few add the mountainous terrain to take it up a notch for serious challenge and endurance. When not out at the races, the Festival Village is the place to be along the scenic French Broad River in West Asheville.

Races and competitions will take place throughout the weekend, starting with the Cyclocross and Ultimate Frisbee at the Festival Village. Things will heat up early on Saturday with a full schedule of high-energy competition highlighted by the Mountain Disc Golf Challenge, French Broad Challenge Triathlon, and SUP race. Dodgeball, beach volleyball and more compete all weekend.
