Things to do & will we miss the rhodies in late April?

Hi - coming to Asheville in late April from the 24th to 27th. I'm wondering about what will be blooming at Biltmore -- such as are the rhododendrons and azaleas over -- and other things to do. What is the Moogfest -- not much about it on the tourist site. Also, other tips for favorite activities.

Thanks.

Susan

Rhododendrons typically bloom in early June depending on elevation. You'll certainly miss them coming in April.

Moogfest is a big music festival celebrating Bob Moog, the inventor of the Moog synthesizer. http://www.moogfest.com

Biltmore has a nice list of things in bloom on their website: biltmore.com/visit/…annual-blooms

Mtn Laurel typically blooms in June, but hopefully you won't miss the azaleas. Try the Blue Ridge Parkway for gorgeous scenery and The Grove Arcade for shopping. Asheville is known as Funkyville, so people watching is always a big hit, too!
