For 71 years Brevard has been home to the world-renowned Brevard Music Center. Brevard is also home to the Porter Center of Performing Arts (Brevard College), and the Transylvania Community Arts Council which brings diverse programs, concerts, and exhibits to our mountain community.
Transylvania County is rich in both cultural and recreational opportunities, from the summer music at the Brevard Music Center, to hiking, hunting, fishing, horseback riding, canoeing, camping and biking in the Pisgah National Forest. There are downtown events such as the Festival of Arts, and the Brevard Philharmonic Orchestra, plus countywide music festivals.
Transylvania County also offers more than 15 summer and year round camps for both boys and girls.
