Music Thursday at the Gathering Place in Chimney Rock Village happens every 4th Thursday of the month, June through September. The Chimney Rock Village Community Development Association invites everyone to bring your friends and family, camp chairs or a blanket, some wine or beer if you like, and your appetite to join in the fun. A picnic-style dinner, soft drinks and desserts will be available for purchase.


The Kollard Kings from Charlotte will make your “toes tap and your ears smile” with their old-time string band music. Their songs come from Charlotte’s surprising heyday as a country music recording center back in the 1930s, the roots of what would become bluegrass.


A minimum $6 donation is suggested. Proceeds from Music Thursdays support the beautification and promotion of Chimney Rock Village. For information on the Chimney Rock Village Community Development Association, the Gathering Place and CDA membership, visit
