Fourth of July picnic at The Orchard

The Orchard at Altapass will throw open the doors of the red barn, light up the grill, sweeten the iced tea, unfold the tables on the pavilion and “dust” the dance floor from 10:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Thursday, July 4, to celebrate Independence Day with its annual picnic.

The Orchard at Altapass steers clear of political speeches, doesn’t stand on ceremony and leaves the fireworks to the towns, but offers a day of family and friends, food and fun, and music – lots of music. Three bands will take to the stage to entertain and provide a background for dancing. 

The price of admission is a covered dish (enough to feed your family, staff, volunteers and musicians; and please bring before 11:30 a.m.). Without a shared dish, the day will cost $15, which includes all the music and dancing you can stand, Orchard BBQ and buns, coleslaw, beans and beverages. Food will be served until 2 p.m. 

The Orchard at Altapass is located at 1025 Orchard Road in Spruce Pine. Visit, Facebook or call 828-765-9531 for more information.
