In the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Big Canoeâ€™s exciting summer events are already under way.Â Big CanoeÂ is a gated Georgia mountain community who won ourÂ Bliss Award forÂ Best Georgia Community of the YearÂ in 2012 in addition to the awards they've won from the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association. Hereâ€™s a sampling ofÂ whatâ€™s happening this summer at Big Canoe:
FOURTH OF JULY FAMILY DAY:
Grab your red, white and blue. Big Canoeâ€™s patriotic celebration includes competition for best decorated bicycle and pooch. Old fashioned field games such as tug of war, water balloons, three legged races, a dunk tank and more will keep the family busy before the night time fireworks display over Lake Petit.
The Terraces at the Big Canoe ChapelÂ is hosting concerts in the heart of the community from now until August. Bands and singers entertain residents with new music as well as old favorites. Dixieland bands performing old favorites entice the audience to sing along with â€œWhen the Saints Go Marching Inâ€ while tapping their toes to American Dixieland jazz. A worldwide trumpet player will be bringing his strong bop approach to this gated Georgia mountain community this summer. Local talent will also be represented.Â Residents and visitors are encourage to buy tickets ahead of time to ensure attendance.
Twilight at the TerracesÂ is on the calendar again this summer. It features an all adult symphony which will be playing patriotic tunes in a program entitled â€œIn Honor of Americaâ€ at the amphitheater.Â
Music in the GardensÂ at theÂ award-winning Gibbs GardensÂ is where residents can walk through and view all of the freshly blooming flora indigenous to the Blue Ridge Mountains while listening to the harps, dulcimers, string quartets, and strolling musicians enhance the visual beauty of the gardens with sweet background music. Gibbs Gardens is an incredible public attractive displaying millions of flowers in themed displays. Music in the Gardens is presented the weekend of Fourth of July, Labor Day weekend, and the Japanese Maples Festival weekend in October. Gibbs Gardens is located less than 10 minutes from Big Canoeâ€™s gated entrance.
The Village FestivalÂ is open on Saturdays now through October. Big Canoe residents can findÂ fresh locally grown produce, homemade pies, one of kind pottery, baskets, gourmetÂ coffees, fragrant soaps, and more at this popular weekly event which has grown to 70+ vendors.
TheÂ Appalachian Renaissance ExhibitÂ is now under way. New this year to the event is that the sponsors, the Blue Ridge Mountains Arts association and the Southern Appalachian Artists Guild, are inviting local â€œemergingâ€ artists from local colleges and art schools to present their work which will be juried by the sponsors. This is a great opportunity for the community to see what their artistic friends and neighbors are working on at Big Canoe.Â
