Summer Fun On Beech Mountain

Town of Beech Mountain, North Carolina

Beat the heat this summer with a trip to Beech Mountain, eastern America’s highest town. A full schedule of fun family-friendly activities, many of them free, awaits you here in North Carolina’s high country, where just a few hours of driving takes you into North Carolina’s cool, breezy highlands. There are plenty of lodging options on Beech Mountain, from hotels to condos and individual houses suitable for families and groups of all sizes.

Beginning May 27th, the Beech Mountain Resort will be open for the summer season. Scenic chair lift rides, downhill mountain biking, and a brewery draw many visitors, and free live music at the Skybar on Saturday afternoons is the icing on the cake. Musicians love to play on the deck of 5506, with panoramic views behind them, and the setting makes for an unforgettable afternoon. The concert is free but there is a charge for the lift ride to the Skybar. Please note that the lift isn’t suitable for pets, infants, or small children. 

The Famous Brick Oven Pizzeria will host Family Fun Night every Friday from June 2nd through August 18th. These popular outdoor gatherings are free, and include live music, a bounce house for kids, and a family-friendly outdoor movie. Fred’s General Mercantile continues a long tradition of Summer Sunset Concerts on the Gazebo every Sunday night in July. 

The Beech Mountain Farmers’ Market is back! Fresh organic produce, honey, baked goods, plants, gourmet dog treats, and farm-raised beef are just a few of the local products that will be available for purchase. Join us every first Friday of the month from June to October from 2 – 6 pm in the public parking lot across from Fred’s General Mercantile. Parking is free!
