A Touch of Green

The bucolic beauty of Cashiers’ Village Green can be reserved for your special event.

The Village Green offers a unique event venue on the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau. The 12.5 acre park in the heart of Cashiers hosts nearly 100 functions each year. The natural beauty of The Village Green makes it an ideal setting for a wedding ceremony, reception, or rehearsal dinner.

Nestled amid the majesty of Whiteside Mountain, Terrapin Mountain and Big Sheep Cliff, the sprawling meadow lawns of The Village Green provides a bucolic setting with an enchanting rustic elegance. During  blooming season, the park features native azaleas, rhododendron and lupine as well as roses, hydrangeas, and award winning dahlias. The Village Green can accommodate an intimate wedding of less than 25 guests or a larger party of 500 or more.

The Village Green has three venues that may be reserved. The Gazebo and Event Lawn are at the crossroads entrance of The Village Green on Highway 65. The Pavilion is a large structure with picnic tables and a charcoal grill. The Village Green Commons is the large multi-use venue located on Frank Allen Road.

“The Village Green is a place where memories are made,” says Executive Director Ann Self. “Whether it’s celebrating a birthday, listening to great music, dining, and dancing under the stars or saying ‘I do,’ The Village Green is honored to be part of the treasured moments of people’s lives.”

The Village Green is a park for public enjoyment, however it is owned and operated by a nonprofit organization.

“Many people do not realize that The Village Green receives no government support,” said Jochen Lucke, Chairperson of The Village Green Board of Directors. “Day to day operations and improvements to the park are funded by special events and individual contributions.”
