Live Music Outside in Fresh Mountain Air:
Bring a picnic and spread a blanket for Pickin’ in the Park in Horseshoe Bend, a beautiful riverside park near McCaysville, GA for live Bluegrass jam sessions, May through September.
Over Labor Day Weekend lots of outdoor live music is happening at Bear Claw Vineyards, Cartecay Vineyards, and the Annual Labor Day BBQ & Gospel Music Show in downtown Blue Ridge City Park. If sipping a craft brew and tapping your feet to a rocking band is more your style, Blue Ridge is home to four great craft breweries, Fannin Brewing Company, Grumpy Old Men Brewing, Tipping Point Brewing Co and Angry Hops Brewing, all offer live music on weekends on their outdoor patios (along with craft brew tastings). Black Sheep Restaurant Bar & Patio and The Dogwood, have a tasty weekend music and happy hour scene.
