Symphony at Chetola Lake

The symphony performance at Chetola Lake is one of the most highly anticipated events of the year. Come see for yourself why people have fallen in love with this experience. Sit by the lake in the cool mountain breeze, and watch the swans drift by. Bring a picnic, or sample delicious cuisine prepared by Chetola’s chef. Immerse yourself in the delightful sounds of the Symphony of the Mountains as the evening slips into night. New this year are hot air balloons- take a ride to experience a spectacular view of the event and surrounding mountains. And the spectacular fireworks, so close, so bright, will take your breath away.
