[exp] [/exp]On Saturday, September 1, Music at the Mountain will take place on the Special Events Meadow at Stone Mountain Park. I’d like to make it out to this one-day music fest, as it features a good mix of performers.
Here’s the lineup:
- 1:00 p.m.: Welcome and Salute to our Nation’s Heroes
- 1:30 p.m.: Katie Armiger
- 3:00 p.m.: Larkin Poe
- 4:30 p.m.: Caroline Aiken
- 6:00 p.m.: Roxie Watson
- 7:30 p.m.: The Shadowboxers
- 9:00 p.m.: Michelle Malone
General admission tickets are $25 for adults, $12 for kids ages 7-12, & free for children age 6 & under. Preferred seating is $40 for adults & $20 for kids. Members of the military & first responders can get GA tickets for $15 & Preferred for $25 each. And, as always, you’ll have to pay for parking, though preferred parking is available for $10.
Want to go on the cheap? Thanks to a deal on WSB’s Family 2 Family page, you can use promo code “Family” to save $5 on tickets. I just tested it, and it works on both GA & Preferred price levels.
Not interested in the music fest but want to visit Stone Mountain Park on Labor Day weekend? Take advantage of one of these deals:
1) As always, if you’re planning to go more than once (and there’s so much to do, you’ll probably need to), buy the Mountain Membership, a.k.a. the season pass. In addition to unlimited admission, Mountain Members save on tickets to Snow Mountain & Ride the ducks, get an extra discount on a parking pass, & more. Even better: The Mountain Members PLUS pass includes tickets to Snow Mountain & Ride the Ducks, annual parking, & other perks. If you’re renewing your membership, wait until you get to the park to do it: Mountain Members PLUS passholders save $10 when they renew their membership at the park, and renewing Mountain Members save $7.
2) Thanks to an online offer, you can save up to 30% with a Family Value Pass. $125 buys four all-attractions Adventure passes, four refillable cups good for unlimited soft-drink refills, and four meal tickets. Or you can pay $155 for the Gold Family Value Pass & get extras for the lasershow, including a seat on the terrace, unlimited popcorn until the start of the show, and one Coca-Cola beverage.
3) Keep an eye on Stone Mountain Park’s Facebook page and Stone Mountain Park’s Twitter page for coupons, like this one: On September 1-3, 2012, $19.99 buys an Adventure Pass, thanks to a deal on Stone Mountain’s Facebook page.
4) Thanks to an offer from Gas South, you can save up to 25% on an Adventure Pass, Mountain Member pass or Mountain Member Plus pass to Stone Mountain Park.
A note about parking: If you walk or ride a bike to Stone Mountain Park, there’s no parking fee. Otherwise, it’s $10. If you must drive & aren’t opting to buy a Mountain Member or Mountain Member PLUS pass, spring for the $35 annual permit if you you live near Stone Mountain Park & plan to visit at least four times a year, whether to take advantage of free special events or the park’s free outdoor activities and laser show.
Stone Mountain Park is located at 1000 Robert E. Lee Dr., Stone Mountain. Technically, the main entrance is located at U.S. Highway 78 East, Exit 8, Stone Mountain, but online mapping programs often don’t like the address. 770-498-5690.
