Love is in the air at Fleetwood’s!

This is one of our favorite times of year at Fleetwood’s Rock-n-Roll wedding chapel. On Valentine’s day we host an annual mass “fake” wedding. You can marry anything you want- your goldfish, a concept ie :”married to the streets”, or your fave pair of jeans! This will happen on Thursday Feb. 14th at 8pm in the chapel. It is $20 adv and $20 day of, this includes a ceremony “officiated” by local comedian Cary Goff, a cake and champagne reception and dance party!

In other big news we have t-shirts coming from our best pals at Image420 printing! They should be ready just in time for Valentine’s Day too!

We have some great shows this weekend.  Wednesday (2/13) we’ll be showing a free music related movie (free popcorn) perfect for a pre V-Day date night. Our buddies from Athens , The Forbidden Waves will be here this Friday with Thee Sidewalk Surfers and killer new band TV SET.   Saturday will be a showcase of local “EMO” Rappers- if you don’t know Emo Rap, now’s your chance to find out… We’ll keep you posted about Sunday.

Fleetwood’s is an all ages venue. The shop and bar are always free to the public (even when events are happening in the chapel).

Asheville’s one and only Rock-n-Roll Wedding Chapel!

We opened Fleetwood’s in August of 2017 with a vision of bringing all of our wild ideas and crazy dreams together. My partners (Christi and Simon Whiteley) and I (Mary Kelley) have filled the need in Asheville for an affordable wedding venue oozing unique character and ultimate rock-n-roll style.  If you are the off-beat couple looking to tie the knot in your own way and on your own terms, then Fleetwood’s Rock-n-Roll  Wedding Chapel is the place for you! We offer multiple wedding packages that fill the bill from a 5 minute quickie ceremony to a fully seated affair with accompanying reception.

When we aren’t hosting weddings in the chapel you can find live bands (local and touring), stand-up comedy, punk-rock flea markets, or a cult classic movie. We have a beer, wine and cider bar focusing on local products and a highly curated vintage boutique available to shop all day and night.
