Entertainment
Asheville is well known for it's abundance of talented local artists. Have you thought about adding this important aspect to your event? How about a Hammered Dulcimer playing soothing melodies while your guests enjoy a traditional meal in our 90 year old tobacco barn?

Jazz, Folk, Swing, Country, and Top 40......you can have it all at Claxton Farm.

We also have a variety of non-music related entertainment. Magicians, clowns, caricature artists, storytellers, face painters, cloggers, carnival rides, petting zoos... the list goes on and on. You name it, we can do it!
