The “Singing” is a day-long gathering held outdoors in MacRae Meadows at the base of Grandfather Mountain. Music begins at 8:30 a.m. and continues throughout the day, with a break around 1 p.m. for the sermon. Many families bring lawn chairs and picnics and make a day of seeing old friends and enjoying performances by top Southern gospel groups.
Admission to the “Singing on the Mountain” is free, and camping (without hookups) is available on the grounds on a first come, first served basis. The “Singing” grounds are located on US Highway 221, two miles north of Linville and one mile from the Blue Ridge Parkway.
