Lake Lure Olympiad
Lake Lure Olympiad

August 15-16, 2014
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 and Chimney Rock.

Also this weekend! The annual Lake Lure Olympiad three-day sports festival is happening! Read more below.

The Dirty Dancing Festival will feature a FREE Lakeside Screening of Dirty Dancing at Morse Park Meadows on Friday at 8 PM. The Festival on Saturday runs 9 AM-4 PM with live music, lake lift competition, games, dance lessons, beer & wine garden, 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.
