Celebrate the beauty of fall in the Western North Carolina Mountains with some live music provided by some of the areas most talented musicians as Saluda Outfitters continues its Saturday evening concerts throughout October.
Join your neighbors for some relaxation and fun in the SO’s outdoor music venue. With a permanent stage for the bands, the outdoor venue is set up in a picnic style atmosphere with tables and a fire pit for those cooler October evenings.
Music begins at 4 p.m. with bands playing until 7 p.m. or sometimes until the crowd dwindles. There is never a cover charge and attendees can choose from a variety of craft beers and wines. Fresh sandwiches, salads, chips and numerous organic snacks are available for purchase inside the store’s snack bar. Casual attire is more than welcome, and the venue is dog friendly.
