64th Annual Easter Sunrise Service (No Tickets Left)
We appreciate your enthusiasm for our Easter Sunrise Service. Unfortunately, all available tickets for parking have been issued. We encourage you to check the ticket link frequently to see if some tickets have been returned.
Celebrate the glory of Easter with song, scripture and spiritual music as a spectacular sunrise ascends over Lake Lure. Chimney Rock’s nondenominational Annual Easter Sunrise Service has become a legendary event in WNC, attracting more than 1,000 early risers from around the Southeast.

6:30 – 7am – Easter Sunrise Service
Please Note: Due to limited parking capacity caused by recent heavy rain storms, this year’s Easter event will be ticketed. Rather than cancel the event or alienate guests who come down to the Park in the early morning hours only to be turned away, we are going to issue advance tickets. Tickets are complimentary and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis beginning April 1. The number of tickets are limited. Park a couple of cars in Chimney Rock Village and come into the Park together. A ticket is required. Vehicles can be no larger than a 16-passenger van. Vehicles without a ticket will not be admitted. Only one ticket is allowed per household; even those with a handicapped placard will be required to have a ticket for their vehicle. Tickets will be released at 9am on Monday, April 1. Thanks for your understanding.
A breakfast buffet will be offered at the Old Rock Café following the service for $11.75 for adults and $6.99 for children under 10; drinks are not included. Guests who would like to return to the Park after breakfast can show their Old Rock receipt and bulletin at the Ticket Plaza to receive free admission for the day.
