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.


Current North Carolina and CDC guidelines make it difficult for us to offer docent services.  Check back in the early summer to see if our policy has changed.

Reserving the Covered Picnic Shelter

Due to NC State and CDC Guidelines, we have suspended our Picnic Shelter Rental. Check back in early summer when we hope to have the shelter available for groups.


Weddings at the Glen are welcome events. They can be arranged by contacting our staff at or calling us at 828-749-3031. Our capacity is 20 guests. Weddings need to be planned between 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM.

Garden House

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. 

Memorial Services

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.

Written Policies

Please contact our Operations Manager at with any questions about your upcoming visit.
