Celebrations of All Sizes, The Village Green

Looking to host a corporate picnic, family reunion, birthday party, wedding or other special occasion event in 2018?  

Look no further than The Village Green, the lovely 13+ acre park in the heart of Cashiers.  The outdoor rustic feeling and the peaceful natural surroundings make it a picture-perfect spot for celebrations of all sizes.

The Village Green has three open air venues that offer unique vistas and experiences perfect for an unforgettable event.  The Gazebo is a rustic structure with large lawn area at the Crossroads that may be used for various events, concerts and private functions.  The Pavilion in the center of the park is a sizable covered shelter with six long picnic tables. 

 “This past year the Pavilion was used for baby showers, family reunions, church picnics, wedding welcome parties and many, many birthday parties,” says Ann Self, Executive Director of The Village Green.  The Village Green Commons is the large, open air, multi-use venue on Frank Allen Road that is popular for weddings and other large special events.  Along with these, the Hayes Fairchild Memorial Garden is a lovely, intimate setting for small gatherings with stacked stone seating under a vine covered arbor.  During spring and summer, The Village Green blossoms with native azalea, rhododendron, and lupine as well as colorful hydrangeas, perennials and annuals.  The spectacular dahlia garden blooms into early fall.  The beauty of The Village Green inspires creativity to events memorable and unique. 

“Everyone loves a party,” says Self, “What better place to celebrate than in the delightful green heart of Cashiers!”

The Village Green is a public park that is privately conserved and maintained by a nonprofit organization.  Day to day operations are funded by individual contributions and special events like the upcoming Cashiers Plein Air Festival in July. 

“The Village Green is more than just a community park,” says Self, “The Village Green is a park for the community.”
