The Asheville Area Arts Council Color Ball
Established in 1985 as the Beaux Arts Ball, the Color Ball fundraiser is a major source of revenue for the AAAC. Over 500 art supporters dressed in their finest monochromatic regalia come together annually for Asheville’s most talked-about party of the year!
Each year a different color is chosen, and Asheville Area Arts Council takes that color to the extreme! From decor to cocktails and even the guests, the entire evening is saturated with the theme color. The Color Ball features live painting and performances like you’ve never seen before in Asheville! From musical and dance performances to acrobatics and face-painting, the excitement of this arts-filled event is palpable.
Proceeds from the Color Ball directly support AAAC’s year-round programming, newly re-vitalized to enhance the capacity and impact of the local creative sector. The Asheville Area Arts Council is the collective voice for the arts, advancing Buncombe County by providing access to resources, developing innovative collaborations, and fostering creativity in the community. The Asheville Area Arts Council is a 501(c)(3) non-profit institution. Thank you for your support!
