Join us for our 25th anniversary celebration from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 17, at the Highland Brewing Company Event Center.
The festivities will highlight the projects and programs within the national park that have been made possible thanks to the support of donors, volunteers, and community partners. Guests are invited to enjoy drinks, hors d’oeuvres, live music from John Herrmann & Friends, and a special ceremony announcing the members of the new Abbott-Everhardt Society. Tickets are $25.
We're so happy to celebrate this milestone with the people who cherish the national park in their backyard. Their support makes a visible impact on the Parkway, and means that generations to come will be able to experience the landscape, history, and culture the park holds. Can't wait to see you there!
Since 1997, the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation has provided more than $20 million in support for the national park. Past projects include the construction of bathrooms and expansion of parking at Graveyard Fields, rehabilitation of the amphitheater at Mount Pisgah Campground, installation of new exhibits at the Craggy Gardens and Waterrock Knob visitor centers, and clearing overgrown vegetation at roadside overlooks.
