Groups & Events
Planning on Hosting a Group or Event?
We are delighted to host school children, college students and senior groups – all are welcome to visit Pearson's Falls and Glen. We also accommodate small weddings. To support our growing needs in this area, we’ve created a convenient bus turnaround and enhanced our parking area. With advance notice, every effort will be made to accommodate our guests.
Depending on your interests, we may be able to provide a docent to assist those groups who want to learn more about the flora, fauna, history, geology, or interesting projects that have been undertaken. For groups of one-five, the fee is $25. Each additional person is $5. The standard admission fee applies. A one-week advance notice is helpful. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Reserving the Covered Picnic Shelter
Groups are welcome to reserve the Covered Picnic Shelter. Please schedule in advance and complete the Special Use Contract.
Weddings at the Glen are welcome events. They can be arranged by contacting our staff at email@example.com or calling us at 828-749-3031. Our capacity is 50 guests. Weddings need to be planned between 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM. If you plan to use the picnic shelter, please complete the Special Use Contract and submit it for approval prior to the event. A pre-booking visit is encouraged.
Local Garden Clubs and Horticultural Groups are invited for one courtesy access per year for a meeting in the Garden House and walk to the falls. Prior arrangement is required through the Pearson’s Falls staff. There is a limit of 40 guests for the Garden House.
We are able to host Memorial Services outside of regular hours, contingent upon the availability and approval of the Operations Manager, who will inform the Pearson’s Falls Chairperson of such services. Services must be held before 10:00 AM in the morning or after 6:00 PM in the evening. A fee of $20 per hour will be required, payable to the Tryon Garden Club, plus normal admittance fee for each person attending the service.
