This year’s “Shine in the Pines” Moonshine Tasting Event will be on Friday, May 27, 2016 from 6:00-9:00 pm.
Guests at the event can enjoy tasting moonshine and hard cider on the banks of the Oostanaula River where Cherokee leader Major Ridge once operated a 223-acre plantation that featured crops of corn and wheat, a fruit orchard and his own vineyard. Doors open for the event at 6:00pm, which features a sampling of moonshine and hard cider, cash bar, lawn games, and bluegrass music. In addition, food trucks and restaurants from Rome will be on-hand to make sure no guest goes hungry. Guests can also enjoy a tour of Chieftains Museum before the event closes at 9:00pm.
Tickets for the event cost $20 in advance, $25 at the gate and include entry to the event, five free samples of moonshine and/or hard cider, and a tour of Chieftain Museum/Major Ridge Home. You must be 21 years of age or older to purchase tickets and attend this event—valid I.D. will be checked at the gate.
Tickets go on sale May 2nd and can be purchased at Chieftains Museum/Major Ridge Home and the Last Stop Gift Shop at the Rome Visitors Center. Portions of each ticket sale are tax-deductible. The “Shine in the Pines” event is sponsored by Friends of Chieftains Museum with all proceeds benefiting the museum.
