Plates for the Parkway

 
Join us for the 2015 Plates for the Parkway Dining Out event on September 15.

Our annual dining out event, Plates for the Parkway, is a great opportunity for local restaurants and patrons to show their support for the Blue Ridge Parkway. By donating 10% (or more) of sales on Tuesday, September 15, to the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation, businesses can give back to a park that brings 14 million visitors to our region each year. Those visitors spend more than $900 million in surrounding communities!

The Parkway is one of our country’s most visited national park units, welcoming more visitors each year than Yellowstone, Yosemite, and the Grand Canyon combined. It is also one of the most diverse places in the nation with regards to its environmental, cultural, and scenic resources. Yet, it operates on a fraction of many parks’ budgets and does not charge an entrance fee and it needs the help of its neighbors and fans to preserve its past, enhance its present, and protect its future.

Plates for the Parkway helps the Foundation by providing funding for critical improvement projects that protect the natural, cultural, historical, and recreational offerings. For a list of our 2015 projects, click hereJoin us to ensure a bright future for the Blue Ridge Parkway!
