    The Festival of Gnarnia

    AUGUST 9 - 11, 2012

    As we journey around the sun, a brief window in time draws near. A unique moment for creative human expression comes to light. Far beyond the dirty sneakers forgotten in the depths of your closet, amongst the breathtaking Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, exists the festival of Gnarnia. For four days this refuge satisfies a special yet sophisticated taste with a legendary mélange of musical acts, performance arts, and artistic craftsmanship. You are cordially invited to the festival of Gnarnia, August 9-11th 2012.


    WOW! I'm in! This is the most unique "ski resort" you'll ever visit. Come for the music and spend a week here visiting Beech Mtn's Land of Oz extravaganze, Festival of Gnarnia. When it's over, head to Valle Crucis for a visit to the Mast General Store. Stop at one of the local spots in Blowing Rock for lunch that seats you outside to enjoy the view.
