A Message from the Chamber

Thank you for your interest in the Symphony by the Lake at Chetola event. The Chamber of Blowing Rock has proudly been producing this event for 33 consecutive years. The Chamber has made the thoughtful decision to postpone the Symphony by the Lake from the traditional fourth Friday in July to Saturday, August 22nd.  This year's event will look and feel a little different, but we feel confident this time will allow us to host the Symphony under healthier circumstances. If you feel uncomfortable attending the event or are unable to make this new date, we hope to see you next July.

Audiophile Section Tickets

If you are a true audiophile – you just love the symphony music and don’t want to participate in the social atmosphere – this is the section for you! A small section located just in front of the symphony tent will be fenced off with reserved seats and shared side tables, a charcuterie box (meats, cheeses, fruit and olives) with two beverage tickets and water. This section is the quiet section, so please keep talking to a minimum. Limited to 100 seats. Tickets available online or in person at the Blowing Rock Chamber of Commerce.

Audiophile Ticket: $100
Audiophile ticket sales end August 17.

Will Call tickets will be picked up at the Blowing Rock Chamber of Commerce office the day of the event (we are creating a “drive thru” for the day of the event from 1-5:30pm!). The office is located at 132 Park Avenue – directly beside Memorial Park in the center of town. Get your tickets early to avoid long waiting lines and a possible sell-out!


Parking and Shuttles and the Handicap Shuttle Bus

We HIGHLY encourage you to park at one of the parking decks/areas in Blowing Rock.

Will Call ticket pick up will be at the Blowing Rock Chamber of Commerce located at 132 Park Ave, Blowing Rock, behind the Blowing Rock Market on Main Street.  We are creating a “drive-thru” for Saturday, August 22nd, the day of the symphony.  Convenient parking is just down the street at the parking deck by the American Legion Hall where a shuttle will pick you up.

ON SITE PARKING OPTION! A limited amount of additional parking is available across the lake at Chetola for $10 per car.  Call or stop by the Chamber for this parking pass.

LIMITED additional parking is available at Tanger Shoppes on the Parkway. Please be courteous and save the areas next to the stores for shoppers OR shop at Tanger prior to coming to the Symphony by the Lake!

Parking at Chetola Resort is reserved for VIP’s with a special permit and handicapped attendees only.  Due to the overwhelming number of handicapped attendees, we strongly suggest use of the trolley service at Food Lion, one of the parking decks or Tweetsie. Many of the spaces at Chetola are quite a distance from the Symphony lawn.

Chetola has only one exit for vehicles and we do the very best we can to expedite your departure.  Parking offsite is your best option.

Changes for 2020: Unfortunately, shuttles to Chetola from off-site parking lots will not be available. Ticket holders will be allowed to park at Tanger Outlets and public parking areas in Blowing Rock and walk to an event entrance. Parking passes are available for purchase for the Snyder Lot inside Chetola.
