Sewanee Mountain Cave Fest is the annual fundraising auction & party hosted by the Sewanee Mountain Grotto in the HEART of T.A.G.
2015 is our 13th year and the event is held over Labor Day weekend at Caver's Paradise (http://www.caversparadise.com
). As usual, there will be an auction, led cave trips, float trip, music, dancing, and a potluck dinner. The event kicks off Friday night September 4, 2015 and goes thru Monday September 7th. Please refer to the Caver's Paradise website for directions.
There is no registration fee to attend, however we do ask that attendees donate an item to the auction and if you plan on participating in the Potluck dinner, please bring a side dish as the Grotto provides the meat. It is preferred that your auction item be caving or camping related and it does not have to be new, be creative! Your 30 year old piece of equipment that you no longer use just might be interesting for a collector! Please note, the campground does charge a $5 camping fee per person for the entire weekend (children under 12 are free) and electrical hookups are available for an additional $25.
Friday night there will be entertainment and the potluck dinner and auction will be Saturday night. Dinner starts at 5pm CST, followed by the auction at 7pm. On Sunday there will be a Bat Float to Nickajack Cave at dusk and music to follow.
As usual, the event will also include home brew from our very own TAG Brewery. We will also have a selection of other fine beers. For a $10 donation you get a 16oz collector cup that you can fill with beer each night all weekend!
All of the proceeds from our event go back into the caving community!
Campground amenities include: Bath house with hot showers, hot tub, and a sauna... And not to mention thousands of caves within an hour drive or less.
