Combining experience in lampworking, glass blowing, and jewelry design, the experienced glassblowers of Asheville Glass Center lead workshops and classes to share their passion for manipulating molten glass. The two- to three-hour intro courses teach neophytes to craft borosilicate marbles and soft glass beads, and more in-depth classes result in intricate implosion flowers and sand-cast solid forms. The center also offers open studio time for more experienced artists who wish to work alone, like the winningest three-legged racers.

At Asheville Gymnastics, athletes are moving in every corner of the room?tumbling into the foam pit, cartwheeling across a balance beam, and flipping from the uneven bars. To help students master these and other skills, the center runs gymnastics classes for all ages, starting with Mighty Mites lessons for kids up to 3 years old and progressing all the way through to gymnastics, aerial silks, and body-conditioning sessions for adults. Recreational and team-gymnastics classes give kids the skills they need to delight family and friends or to medal at their next competition. Birthday parties build fun gymnastics lessons into a two-hour burst of activity, complete with any needed anti-gravity equipment for kids who forgot to put grasshoppers into their shoes.

The idea for an annual barbecue expo began slow-cooking in 2010 at a family lunch. The Boyds thought about organizing a little barbecue competition and ended up luring 8,500 barbecue enthusiasts to their "small" cook-off and fundraiser. Now in its third year, the charitable event continues to develop flavor and raise money for local schools while packing bellies with some of the area's best barbecue recipes.

With napkins in hand, attendees can follow the smoky scents and sounds of sauce-splattered high-fives from the tents of a variety of vendors. Ten teams of grilling gurus face off in a whole-hog cook-off, with the winners earning a cash prize and a spot in the state championship later this year. A new Chick-fil-A sauce competition sifts through the day's top toppings until a winner is crowned. Between bites, guests can also savor the festival's many attractions, including a police dog demonstration, a petting zoo, and a BMX bike show, where riders wow onlookers by performing tricks and bunny-hopping over smokers.
