About the 2021 Singing on the Mountain

Dedicated to the Glory of God in the Land of the Sky

It is with our deepest regret that the 2021 Singing on the Mountain has been cancelled. We know this is an enormous disappointment; however, we felt this is necessary due to the uncertainty of these times and to ensure the health and well-being of our friends, families, speakers, and musicians.

We are starting to plan the 2022 Singing on the Mountain, so please keep an eye out for updates. We hope to see you next year!

History of the Singing

Joseph Larkin Hartley founded the Singing on the Mountain in 1924. For nearly a century, the all-day, free festival of gospel singing and fellowship has been held on the fourth Sunday of June at the base of Grandfather Mountain. In a spirit of faith and community, all were and are welcome to enjoy picnics and musical performances together at the majestic mountains of Western North Carolina.
