ASHEVILLE, NC – It is important to note that dogs and animals are not permitted with the Bele Chere festival boundaries. This rule will be strictly enforced. Please make arrangements to leave pets at home or to drop them off at the Chain Free Asheville Doggy Jail where they will have a cool and relaxing stay while you stroll around the festival.
Bele Chere is partnering with local non profit, Chain Free Asheville, to provide a dog sitting service for a nominal fee during the festival hours. The “Doggy Jail” will be located between City Hall and the Court House at 70 Court Plaza, right outside of the festival footprint.
