About

Up to 200 guests

Forge Valley is a family owned and operated facility where we strive to make your wedding day experience memorable and stress free as possible. We are a unique facility in that we can provide all of the vendors needed through our recommended vendors or we do allow outside vendors!

Hold your wedding ceremony next to our five acre Lyday Lake while your guests enjoy a breathtaking view of the Pisgah National Forest mountainside just behind you. Then, with just a few steps away, celebrate with your guests inside our 5,000 square foot event center. The rustic elegant decor allows your wedding reception atmosphere to be as cozy casual or elegant as you wish.

We specialize in outdoor wedding ceremonies and indoor receptions but we have the accomodations to do any combination. General pricing for our facility is based on time needed at our facility from set up to breakdown. You will choose from a half day (8 hour set time frame) or our All Day (15 hour time block) package based upon your "time" needs. Additional items such as linens, catering, entertainment, accommodations, etc are all priced separately and can be added to any package. These packages can be found on our website.

    Ashley did a fantastic job with helping plan our wedding at Forge Mountain Event Center. She is very organized and professional. She listened to our needs and concerns and had excellent suggestions and recommendations to make our night a perfect night for everyone. A classic example of the type of service you can expect when holding your event here follows: When we arrived she had both indoor and outdoor arrangements prepared as we wanted to hold our ceremony outside by the lake but the weather forecast was questionable. Later that night when we had realized we forgot containers for the leftovers she volunteered to run to a local store and purchase some for us! You won't be disappointed if you have your special event at Forge Valley! Superb customer service!

    Forge Valley Event Center's reply:

    Thank you so much Tom for your kind words. We are blessed to have been apart of your special day!
