Fans of the cult-classic Dirty Dancing will relive memories of Baby's first dance at the "Dirty Dancing Festival" in the film’s original, breathtaking backdrop of Lake Lure, NC.
This year’s festival will feature a FREE Lakeside Screening of Dirty Dancing at Morse Park Meadows on Friday at 8:30 PM, a Daytime Dance Festival on Saturday 9 AM-4 PM with live music, lake lift competition, games, dance lessons, crafts and much more. Attendees are encouraged to come to scenic Lake Lure to dance, eat, drink, golf, enjoy great live music, attempt their own ‘Lake Lift,’ carry a watermelon or two, and ultimately have the ‘Time of Their Lives!’
Named the “#1 Most-Watched Film by Women” by the BBC News, Dirty Dancing’s impact on pop culture remains timeless.
Named one of the top 10 most beautiful man-made lakes in the world by National Geographic, Lake Lure is nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Located about 27 miles from Asheville, Lake Lure sits in the Hickory Nut Gorge, surrounded by lush mountain tops and sheer granite cliffs. Look up to see the famous Chimney Rock.
Admission: Screening is FREE!
Festival Tickets: Adult: $15 ($20 at door) Child: $5 ($8 at door)
