Are dogs allowed? — Yes, dogs are allowed as long as they are friendly, kept on a very short leash, and their owners bring bags to pick up after them. Please keep in mind seating will be very close quarters.
Will there be food and drinks available? — Yes, we will have The Beached Pig (BBQ), Auntie Anne’s Pretzels, Kona Ice, The Aero Bar (coffee bar and 2 signature cocktails), Half Batch Brewing with their local craft beers, and Rock Castle concessions with chips, candy, and drinks.
Can I bring my own food and drinks? — Yes you can, but why lug it in when you can get food and drinks on-site and support local businesses at the same time! :)
Will there be seating provided? — No, this is an outdoor event in a field. Guests are encouraged to bring chairs or a blanket to sit on. NO umbrellas or tents of any kind will be permitted, as they block the view of the guests behind them.
Are there restrooms available? — Yes, we will have portable restrooms, including handicap access.
Is this event handicap accessible? — As much as an event in a field can be. We will have very limited on-site handicap access parking, and guests will be required to cross a field to get from parking (or the shuttle drop-off) to the Symphony seating area. It is fairly level, but still a field. There is not a handicap seating area, as all seating is first come first serve.
What is the address? — 139 Rock Castle Lane, Hendersonville
Can I hear the music from the lake? — Absolutely! There will be speakers down by the water’s edge for guests on boats to enjoy.
Will there be bounce houses or activities for children? — Due to space constraints, there will not be bounce houses or games. However, the Symphony is bringing their Instrument Petting Zoo so kids of all ages can try their hand at the instruments played by the orchestra!
