Barnsley’s Spectacular Independence Day Weekend Special

June 03, 2019

It was a hot, muggy summer’s day in Philadelphia when representatives of the Second Continental Congress approved the document that would officially declare the birth of a new nation. Now, almost two-and-a-half centuries later, Barnsley Resort invites you to celebrate this Declaration of Independence with us as we also continue to celebrate our own 20th year as North Georgia’s most elite travel destination. From July 4 – 7, Barnsley will host an Independence Day Weekend with exciting events and fun activities for the whole family. Festivities begin at 9:15 P.M. on Thursday, July 4, with a scintillating sparkler salute, followed by the screening of a patriotic film favorite under the stars. Complimentary popcorn, candy, and lawn chairs will be provided. After a good night’s rest in your luxurious Barnsley accommodations, you’ll have the opportunity to learn the basics of canoeing and kayaking from friendly, expert staff on our tranquil 10-acre lake. Then it’s off to the Beer Garden for lunch and bicycle decorating to prepare for the Independence Day bicycle parade through Barnsley Village. (Though a limited number of resort bicycles will be available, guests are encouraged to bring their own if possible.) Dinner for the evening will consist of a classic American barbecue buffet accompanied by live musical entertainment and culminating in a spectacular fireworks show.
