64th Annual Easter Sunrise Service

Time: Gate opens 5am-6am for 6:30am service
Cost: Admission to the Sunrise Service is free. Guests are invited to stay and enjoy the Park all day.

Celebrate the glory of Easter with song, scripture and spiritual music as a spectacular sunrise ascends over Lake Lure. Chimney Rock’s nondenominational Annual Easter Sunrise Service has become a legendary event in WNC, attracting more than 1,000 early risers from around the Southeast.

A breakfast buffet will be offered at the Old Rock Café following the service for $11.75 for adults and $6.99 for children under 10; drinks are not included. Guests who would like to return to the Park after breakfast can show their Old Rock receipt and bulletin at the Ticket Plaza to receive free admission for the day.
