Yes, tickets are transferable up to seven days prior to the event. We do require that you email us if you need to transfer a ticket or tickets.

How much time have you got? All of our workshops are historically or Outlander based. In fact, we’ve got more workshops than you’ll possibly have time in which to participate. The good thing is that you get to pick and choose which of them are the most important and best suited to you. This way you get to make your own schedule based on your workshop preferences. A tentative listing of workshops may be found on the Home page.

Registration for workshops will begin August 15, 2021.

Workshops will begin as early as 11:00 AM on Thursday, October 14 and will continue on Friday, October 15 and Saturday, October 16.  A schedule will be released prior to workshop registration.

Not entirely. It’s a work in progress but many of the activities, workshops, entertainers, meals and other things have already been decided and confirmed. Please review our full website for what’s been confirmed so far. 

Please note that appearances, workshops and the itinerary is subject to change without notice.

Truly as early as you want, depending on your lodging situation. However, check-in for the Homecoming itself won’t begin until Thursday, October 14, at 9:00 AM.  

No. We like to keep the family feel of the Homecoming. That can only happen when the same folks are together over an extended period of time. Life-long friendships are formed in this type of setting.

The cast members will be doing a Q & A plus photo ops and autographs on Saturday, October 16. 

In addition to the Q & A and photo/autograph opportunities during the day on Saturday, Annette, Gary & Graham will be with us at the “Celebration at Fraser’s Ridge” on Saturday night, October 16. At other times throughout the Homecoming, it will be entirely up to them and at their discretion. You never know…you may find yourself sitting next to one of them at a workshop or other activity.

And Sunday morning…well, you’re in for a special treat as we bid farewell to each other and to Fraser’s Ridge!

Yes! Parking is available in designated areas. 

A majority of the facilities at Leatherwood are handicap accessible. The exception is the Hendrix Cabin near the entrance to Leatherwood. This cabin is over 200 years old and isn’t rented out for lodging but is used for other purposes. We will be using it for registration/check-in on Thursday and a few of the workshops througout the weekend. If you have accessibility needs, please include that information when purchasing your ticket.

Probably not. The majority of the cabins are up the mountain. Designated parking will be available for workshops, meals, activities, etc. which will all be down the mountain.

No, but we do highly recommend it!! Cabin sharing at Leatherwood has become a popular option to help defray costs and wonderful friendships have been forged because of it! Leatherwood also offers camping sites! Check the “Lodging” tab in the main menu to see all of the lodging options not just at Leatherwood but elsewhere.

If you must stay elsewhere, please allow extra driving time as travel, especially at night, can be hazardous. 

Both the Charlotte Douglas International Airport in Charlotte and the Piedmont Triad International Airport in Greensboro are approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes away from Leatherwood Mountains Resort.

As much as we’d love to spend that time getting to know you, our budget won’t permit us to provide transportation. We suggest renting a car. Besides, you will need it to get around.

No. We simply don’t have the resources. You will need to provide your own transportation to and from your lodging. FYI: Uber & Lyft are not viable options in the Carolina backcountry. 

That depends on what you want to do and what you sign up for. The center of activities, the buildings and other areas where the workshops, entertainment, meals and other things will take place is somewhat spread out but definitely within a comfortable walking distance from each other.

The scheduled “walks” are, of course, longer and a bit more strenuous. Transportation to the starting point of a couple of the walks will be provided by way of a hayride.  Descriptions of each walk will be provided prior to workshop registration and will indicate what level of endurance you might need before signing up. Workshop registration is set for August 15, 2021.

We love kids and we are friendly but, this is an adult-only event. Children are welcome to accompany you at your accommodations but we are unable to allow them to accompany you during the various activities, meals, etc. unless there are extenuating circumstances. In the event of an extenuating circumstance, a request must be made to and approval granted by the Homecoming team. 

NO pets are allowed at any of the scheduled workshops, presentations, demonstrations or meals at the Homecoming . Exception: Registered service animals only.

You should check with whomever you have accommodations with regarding pet-friendly spaces.

That would be Wilkesboro, which is approximately 30 minutes from the Homecoming venue. You can check out their business directory here.  And their tourist information here.

No, we don’t but we do highly recommend you get your own. Please see our refund and cancellation policy here for more details.
