Renowned for its commitment to showcasing a vast array of exceptional artistic talent and entertainment, this year’s series is sure to offer something for everyone.

The Office of Arts and Cultural Programs at ASU presents “An Appalachian Summer Festival” each year.

What began as a small chamber music series has emerged as one of the nation’s most highly regarded, multidisciplinary art festivals. The Southeast Tourism Society has named ASF one of the “Top 20 Events in the Southeast”.

True to the concept of a university-based arts festival, important festival program always incorporates educational experiences including lectures and opportunities to meet artists, directors, competition jurors and other experts.
