Several local partnerships will make this a party to remember.  Free entertainment offered on this special evening includes a fire show in the greenspace, dance party with DJ Malinalli, and a costume contest with prizes from local business.  

A professional face and body painter will be in the cidery from noon thru 7pm, operating by appointment and walk-ins for smaller projects.  

Experience the First Ever "Fire Flight" of six, which ranges from a subtle jalapeƱo tingle to the current hottest pepper in the world, Scorpion/Carolina Reaper. Smoking J’s Fiery Foods has been working with the Urban Orchard Cidermakers to create the First Ever “Fire Flight”!  Urban Orchard Cider Co. will offer a specialty flight of six that utilizes the entire range of hot peppers and complimenting flavors. Smoking J’s is a hot pepper farm in Candler, NC that produces everything spicy, from hot sauce to pepper mash.

TheUnifire Theater performers will put on a fire show with a voodoo vibe at 9pm in the Urban Orchard Cider Bar greenspace.  Recent shows include LAAFF, Lake Eden Arts Fest and Hemlockfest.

“Asheville Face and Body Art is excited to be a part of the Halloween experience at Urban Orchard Cider Co. We offer amazing face and body art, from gruesome zombies to beautiful bling masks. We will be offering children's face painting all day, and of course booking appointments for more detailed designs. Call us to book an appointment, or for quick faces just stop by.”

Local artist, DJ Malinalli, will be spinning dance music from 8pm until midnight.  Malinalli specializes in international beats and will mix in your Halloween favorites to set the tone for the evening.  You may have danced to his music at other Asheville venues such as Aloft, K Lounge and Room Nine.
