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!
