What a magnificent time it is to come and visit the North Georgia Mountains! Springtime is here, and much like the flowers that bloom during this magical season, Blue Ridge is blooming as well with a slew of activities, events and adventures for the whole family to enjoy.
When March ends and April begins, people from around the state know that it is officially time for The Taste of Blue Ridge. Back for a sixth consecutive year, the Taste of Blue Ridge is bigger and better than ever! Last year this important event brought in over $35,000 for the Humane Society of Blue Ridge and was a gathering place for hungry attendees to experience the true talent that local restaurants, caterers, and chefs have to offer in our beautiful city.
Make sure to cleanse your pallet, because this year’s Taste of Blue Ridge features over 30 participants that will take your taste buds on a culinary journey that you will never forget. Add to that a repeat performance by the one-and-only Buckner Brothers Band, and you will be telling your friends about this event for years to come!
Of course The Taste of Blue Ridge would not be complete without auctions! This year will feature both a live and a silent auction, with all proceeds going to the Humane Society of Blue Ridge.
Southern Comfort Cabin Rentals and its adventure partners is proud to announce that for the third year running we will be offering a fantastic "Blue Ridge Vacation Package" for attendees to bid on during the live auction. Package items include: A cabin rental package for two nights and two guests at the prestigious Choctaw Mountain Lodge, a thrilling adventure for two Zipping and White Water Rafting with the awesome guides of RaftOne, a $50 gift certificate to the always happening microbrew pub (an event sponsor) Blue Ridge Brewery, and a 'Gold Package' scenic helicopter ride with Blue Ridge Helicopters above our lovely city of Blue Ridge gem of North Georgia! and the surrounding area.
