The White Squirrel

Visit Brevard and you’ll find our favorite furry friend, the white squirrel, at every turn! This unusual little guy likes to pose on campus for pictures and is a popular subject for local arts, crafts, and photography. Be sure to stop in any store downtown (especially “The White Squirrel Shoppe!) and pick up some essential white squirrel gear - anything from T-shirts to bumper stickers to Christmas ornaments. Visit in May and you’ll experience our annual White Squirrel Festival, named by Asheville Citizen-Times as the “Best WNC Spring Music Festival!” This street festival is right downtown and features the best Brevard has to offer - local and regional bands, arts and crafts, food, and even a “squirrel-box” derby!
