Bring the family and your camping gear for a night under the stars at our Fall 2019 Spring Lanterns on the Lawn: A Family Campout on the Tryon Palace South Lawn to benefit the Tryon Palace Foundation.
Campers can reserve 15-foot square plots on the South Lawn for a campsite and set up for the evening. Setup begins 2:00–6:00 p.m. Saturday. The Tryon Palace Gardens and Garden Shop will remain open until dusk to allow campers to walk through the gardens, and purchase items from store.
