Daily Events

We have updated our Calendar of Events to include special “Daily Events”. You can now find events broken up by each day of your visit. Scroll through the exciting list below to locate the events which interest you. Each event if described and has detailed information on how to participate.

Please note that while the vast majority of our events are included with your nominal park admission fee, there are some events which require a small fee to participate. This is to ensure you receive expert guidance and knowledge from special trained individuals. In order to easily determine the cost for each event, we have included a column for each event called “cost”

We look forward to seeing you on the mountain.

  • My husband, myself and our 6 year old daughter went to Grandfather Mountain, and we hiked up the mountain instead of driving. We had a blast. It is so beautiful there, we are planning to go back. I recommend it to everyone.
