What we’re about

If you are excited by science – whether or not you are a science professional – and you live in the Western North Carolina area, then the Asheville Science Tavern is a great meetup for you! Our mission is to humanize science and scientists - sharing the work of science in a way that is warm, engaging, often funny, inspiring, even beautiful. 

In WNC we live in an area of tremendous biological and geological richness, with many areas under dark skies for observing astronomy. For example, the Pisgah Astronomical Research Institute (PARI) was recently awarded the designation as a Dark Sky Park.

Our MeetUp is free to join, and our events are free except where there is a fee charged by one of our partners. We often pass a flask to collect a few bucks to offset our expenses, but it's optional to chip in. We hope you join us at one of our events!
Also, if you miss one of our events but want to catch the recording, feel free to visit our Asheville Science Tavern YouTube Channel: Asheville Science Tavern - YouTube
