If you’re planning to See Rock City in 2024…get ready for a shake-up!
This year, Rock City is replacing Shamrock City, EarthDayz, Southern Blooms Festival, Summer Music Weekends, and Rocktoberfest, and will instead introduce Rock City Seasons to take their place. The new seasons — Spring Blooms, Mountaintop Summers, Fall Colors, and HoliDAYS — will each feature special celebrations, performances, activities, and photo ops.
And don’t worry! Enchanted Garden of Lights will remain.
Rock City is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the south. Located just six miles from Chattanooga, Tennessee atop Lookout Mountain, Rock City is known for its unique geological and botanical wonders, the Swing-A-Long Bridge that spans nearly 200 feet, the large waterfall, and its awesome special events throughout the year.
This year, Rock City is introducing Rock City Seasons, which will include four distinctly-themed seasons — Spring Blooms, Mountaintop Summers, Fall Colors, and HoliDAYS. The new lineup will replace some of the special weekend events Rock City has hosted in the past.
“Our hope with highlighting the seasons versus special events is not at all to diminish the kind of enhancements we have offered during our previous weekend-only events, but instead offer the enhancements folks love every day of the season,” said See Rock City Inc. President & CEO, Doug Chapin.
Here’s what you can expect from the new seasonal lineup…
- Spring Blooms (March 4 – May 12). The new lineup will begin with Spring Blooms, when guests can soak up the sunshine, spring décor, and the garden’s awesome art installations.
- Mountaintop Summers (May 24 – September 2). Wind through cool corridors of stone and beat the heat with a refreshing beverage while taking in the famous 7-state view! As always, the Rock City Raptors birds of prey shows are a sight to see.
- Fall Colors (September 14 – November 8). See the gardens and the Chattanooga Valley in full autumn splendor during Rock City’s Fall Colors. Pumpkins, haybale vignettes and other seasonal decorations throughout the trails provide a picture-perfect backdrop for fall family photos. Guest-favorite banjo player Matt Downer is sure to amaze guests of all ages during one of Rock City’s most popular seasons.
- HoliDAYS (November 22 – January 4). Rock City’s HoliDAYS is the daytime complement to the nightly Enchanted Garden of Lights. Featuring festive natural decorations, HoliDAYS provides a unique Christmas experience for daytime guests.
Rock City is also excited to host a first-of-its-kind nighttime soirée, Rock City Nights: Flora Luna. With food, gardens and art intertwined, the attraction’s first food & drink event offers a unique dining experience in a low light garden environment.
From April 5 to May 12, wine and dine in the gardens at twilight and be one of the first to cross the Swing-A-Long Bridge at night! Tickets go live for Flora Luna on March 1.
The new seasonal offerings are included with your Rock City General Admission ticket. Enchanted Garden of Lights is a separately ticketed event.
