About Wildacres 

WildAcres is a conference center offering its facilities to nonprofit groups that conduct educational or cultural programs and seminars. It is a true retreat, undisturbed by through traffic or noises of the city. There are 2 lodges, a dining hall, a library and auditorium, a pottery and printmaking studio, a jewelry studio and lapidary, as well as multiple classroom spaces. All sleeping rooms have private baths and either two twin beds, or one double and one twin bed. Meals are served family style. WildAcres is situated on 1600 acres at an elevation of 3300 feet atop a mountain called Pompey’s Knob, near the Blue Ridge Parkway. It is halfway between Asheville and Blowing Rock in North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains. Due to health regulations, no pets are allowed.

We are all very excited for this summer and fall, and we look forward to seeing everyone in the mountains! 
Please understand the following adjustments are being made this year to ensure everyone can participate with utmost health, safety, and peace of mind: 
  1. We are requiring vaccination for attendance this October. This is to best protect you and everyone around you, and will also allow us to keep *mask requirements to a minimum. 
  2. Given our current considerations we are excited to be offering a full 7 workshops in October! With this in mind, we will be capping all classes based on safety considerations for classroom size and class popularity.  
  3. Given this year’s capacity limitation, you will notice a $100 price increase for all workshops that we believe you will see as reasonable and comparable for the smaller class sizes and single (no roommate) room accommodations that are being given at no additional cost. 
  4. All room assignments will be single rooms (no assigned roommates) at no extra cost. Shared rooms will be accommodated only with partners or travel companions at the same registration price per person – you may request this roommate accommodation with your registration. Keep in mind that rooming with family/friends/companions will help us to increase enrollment in classes! The more the merrier! 
  5. Room furnishings are limited to sheets and blankets on the beds. There will be no bedspreads or pillows in the rooms. As guests you are allowed and encouraged of course to bring your own blankets and pillows. Also brand new (still in package) pillows will be available for purchase from Wildacres for around $10. 
  6. Dining will be buffet-style rather than family style. Dietary considerations are still being taken care of. 
  7. *Masks will be required by all guests in the dining hall unless seated at your table while eating/drinking in dining hall – this is required by all attendees regardless of vaccination status. 
We hope this is good news for you, and that you will be able to join us at Wildacres this October!
