Summer Suppers

The Summer Suppers

Regrettably, the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic have made it necessary to postpone the 2020 Summer Suppers to 2021 and not undertake a Scruffy City Soiree this year.  Instead, we will have one really special event in September that is a combination of all the things we love about both!


On Friday, September 25, we’re heading to the farm – Tim and Deanna Hill’s Rivershack Farm overlooking the Holston River and the Great Smoky Mountains. Return with us to a simpler time as we celebrate the end of summer under a big sky with an old-fashioned barbecue-fueled extravaganza. This special gathering will linger in your memory for many summers to come.

6:30 PM | Tickets $150 per person PURCHASE ONLINE HERE
Attire: Country Chic
Tickets are refundable until 5 pm on September 15.
