Doors will open at 3 p.m. and guests will convene on the outdoor pavilion at BRMC, which is located equidistant between Blowing Rock and Boone, just off the Blue Ridge Parkway.brmc02

Dinner and refreshments will be available for sale from Woodlands Barbecue and the Blowing Rock Ale House.

This outdoor music festival is free and open to the public, although donations will be accepted for the Hospitality House. RSVP is appreciated but not required. RSVP to Bailey Kinsman by phone at 828-295-8667 or by email at bkinsman@brmountainclub.com.

Established in 1984, the Hospitality House remains a place to get a hand up, not a handout, according to its website.

“Through the provisions of food, shelter and supportive services, the goal is for every adult and child to leave empowered and equipped with the skills that will allow them to transition from crisis to stability, poverty to sustainability and homelessness to self-sufficiency,” the site reads.

The Blue Ridge Mountain Club is, literally and figuratively, a community on the rise. Founded in 2008, it spans more than 6,200 acres and offers a sanctuary of picturesque mountaintop living amid the highest ridgelines at the crossroads of Blowing Rock’s charm and Boone’s conveniences.

The mission of Blue Ridge Mountain Club is to continuously nurture the spirit of community by creating meaningful places that facilitate authentic family experiences that become the hallmarks of heritage and tradition across multiple generations.
