GRAMATIK, PAPER DIAMOND & MORE TO PLAY THE FESTIVAL OF GNARNIA
During August 9-11, in the year of two

Far beyond the dirty sneakers hidden in the depths of your closet is Eastern America's highest
town, Beech Mountain North Carolina, and The Festival of Gnarnia.
Three performance areas, interactive workshops, performance arts, healthy cuisine options,
bicycle jousting, mud wrestling tournaments, hikes, waterfalls, and vacation rentals set the stage
to make this a truly unique and wholesome event. Ski lifts are available for guests to summit
the mountain for yoga and meditation workshops or simply to watch the sunset fill a 100 mile
view of Blue Ridge Mountains.

houses, many of which are within walking distance of the resort. P rices are as low as $20 per

from your porch or even reserve a private cabin with a hot tub.
