Trick or Tarot

News Release: Monday, September 25, 2023

About: Ciao Asheville Event: Trick or Tarot? The History of Tarot in Italy

Tarot cards originated in northern Italy during the late 14th or early 15th century. They began as illustrated playing cards with imaginative themes and were used for a leisurely card game called tarocchi, which became popular in Europe. Tarocchi eventually became tarot in southern France and around the mid 18th century decks started to be used for divination and fortune telling while also being infused with a layer of the occult. In modern times you'll find a never-ending variety of designs and themes for tarot cards, from French Impressionism to Star Wars.

Just in time for Halloween, join Ciao Asheville and local teacher, folklorist and book author H. Byron Ballard as she discusses the history of tarot and how cards are interpreted (is drawing the Death card always a bad thing?) She'll also do some sample card interpretations for attendees. 

This event will take place on Thursday, October 26, from 5-6pm at Metro Wines, 169 Charlotte Street, Asheville. Price for the evening is $20 + tax and includes a glass of red or white Italian wine. Register online here and find out more information about this event here. (Note: registration refundable up to 48 hours prior to the event.) For more information call Metro Wines at (828) 575-9525.

Note for attendees: Please park at the back of the parking lot at Metro Wines.
