Easter Weekend

Connect with family and friends during a festive Easter weekend at Lake Junaluska.

Join us on Sunday, March 31, 2024, for an uplifting outdoor Easter Sunrise Service and festive Easter Breakfast and Lunch Buffets at the Lambuth Inn Dining Room.

The Easter Sunrise Service service will begin at 7 a.m. at the outdoor amphitheater that overlooks the lake from beneath the Lake Junaluska Cross and is open to the public for in-person worship. The guest preacher will be the Rev. Dr. Amy Valdez Barker. Sunrise service attendees are encouraged to dress warmly for cool mountain morning temperatures. In the event of rain, the service will be held at Memorial Chapel.
