Throughout the summer, join us in the Backyard on select Sundays as we host a variety of musicians and bands before lighting up the night’s sky with a spectacular fireworks display.

Before the concert, join us in Georgia’s as Chef Shaun Thomas presents a Backyard BBQ on select evenings of summer concerts. Entrees vary each week, but will feature menu items such as a BBQ half chicken and grilled rainbow trout complemented by family style salads and appetizers comprised of vegetables and fresh herbs pulled directly from the resort’s garden. Barrel Room’s Certified Bourbon Stewards will be on hand serving cocktails from the lounge’s personal select spirits – the largest personal selection in the Southeast - while pouring cold brews from the Creature Comforts Brewing Cart. Georgia’s Backyard BBQ is priced at $55 per plate for adults and $35 per plate for children.
