Mountain Xpress is the Asheville area’s alternative weekly newspaper, available in nine counties, publishing every Wednesday. Xpress builds community and strengthens democracy by serving an active, thoughtful readership at the local level — where the impact of citizens is the greatest.
We report independently, fairly and in-depth on local news and issues affecting Asheville and the surrounding region. And we chronicle the area’s vibrant arts-and-culture scene.
We also offer exceptional and affordable media opportunities for local businesses, professionals and nonprofit groups to promote their goods and services.
