Black Mountain Sourwood Festival Fun & Dinner Day Trip

  • Aug 10, 2013 · 10:15 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Black Mountain boasts the annual  Sourwood Festival in downtown Black Mountain with entertainment, cultural arts, dancing, food, and wonderful mountain scenery!

Over 30,000 people from all over America will be in attendance at the festival which grows in popularity each year.

With about 200 vendors you will discover lots of local and unique arts and crafts and there will be something to please every palate with BBQ and vegetarian faire, custom-crafted ice cream and famous sourwood honey.  Enjoy the honey and bee demos as well as the gourmet sourwood honey, - you don't want to miss this event!

After a leisurely day in the mountains, we will go to Madison Inn for dinner (dutch treat).

Here is link for the dinner menu:

Let's meet at StoneCrest for a great road trip to the mountains.

Cost is $49 per person (Check) or $53 (credit cards).  Once you RSVP information will be sent as to how to reserve your seat and stay an RSVPer.  Seats are filled on first come, first pay basis.  If we do not get a minimum for the motor coach, we will carpool. You will get a refund of $34 if we end up carpooling. The $15 difference will go to the car drivers to assist them in paying for gas, wear & tear on their vehicle and if anything is left from this to give them a "tip" to put toward their meals for the day for their generosity.

Payments are due as soon as you decide you would like to go. Check your calendar BEFORE you send in your payment.  I cannot refund your payment if you change your mind or only want to go if we go by motorcoach.  Carpooling is fun but our hope is to have more fun and all ride together on the coach.

AGAIN, Once we have your RSVP, more information will come to your email box within a couple of days.

If you have any questions, call/email:

    The festival was fun, but small. Loved black mountain, quaint stores and local entertainment. Also the restaurant, food and fellowship was great!
