The Town of Beech Mountain and Beech Mountain Resort are coming together for the eighth year in a row to host an ‘80s-themed retro celebration throughout this upcoming weekend. From Thursday to Sunday, there will be various activities to participate in while donning your favorite neon ‘80s gear on the mountaintop; each day of the ‘80s celebration features “Retro Skiing” throughout the day to encourage attendees to get in the 1980s mood!

This year’s lineup of events includes various things for the whole family to enjoy; each event takes place at different locations throughout Beech Mountain, as specified in the schedule below. Kicking off the ‘80s weekend are Thursday night’s events, including the beginning of a Galaga arcade game competition, followed by an ‘80s trivia night at the Taproom & Grill and live music at Rascal’s to end the night.

Friday continues the extended flashback to the ‘80s with events such as an ‘80s ski apparel parade at the top of the Beech Mountain slopes, a chance to see ECTO-1 and DeLeorean vehicles like those featured in the classic ‘80s films Ghostbusters and Back to the Future, respectively, and an ‘80s style Prom with live music from DECARLO where a Prom King and Queen will be named.

Saturday’s events will begin with a retro ‘80s Pancake breakfast at the Buckeye Recreation Center, with $12 tickets for adults and $10 for kids 12 and under. Throughout the day there will be other activities such as kids games, a “name that ‘80s tune” contest, kids karaoke, and more live music; starting at 9pm begins the $500 Totally Retro Apparel Contest (18 & older) with Cassette Rewind taking the stage at 10pm and a late night ‘80s Dance Party beginning at 11:30pm for the late night crowd.

Sunday winds down the ‘80s weekend with Tito’s vodka presenting Sunday Bloody Sunday, a Bloody Mary drink special at the Beech Mountain Taproom & Grill to relax after a late night of Saturday partying. The Beech Mountain Retro ‘80s weekend officially ends at 1pm on Sunday with the Kids in America Retro Apparel Contest (17 & under) at The Famous Brick Oven Pizzeria.

Bring your family, your brightest ‘80s apparel, and a radical attitude to Beech Mountain this weekend to participate in the throwback experience of a lifetime; whether you lived through the 1980s or not, it will definitely be a fun-filled weekend for everyone involved!
