October 5th & 6th at Beech Mountain

Join us for the 20th anniversary celebration


In 1970, a small piece of magic opened on Beech Mountain that celebrates the miracle that is The Land of Oz; A classic adaptation of the publication of L. Frank Baum's book, "The Wonderful Wizard of OZ", upon which the beloved film was based.

Children and adults a like will be enchanted as they experience the re-­creation of Dorothy's magical trip from her farm home in Kansas through the twister and down the yellow brick road to the "Land of OZ". Along your journey you will be met by a full cast portraying many of the vibrant characters similar to those of the original Oz.

Spend the day, or better yet spend the weekend and enjoy all Autumn at Oz and Beech Mountain has to offer.

Designed for all generations, the venue provides safe and ample parking for visitors. Transportation to and from the Land of Oz is included in the ticket price. Go by bus to an elevation of over 5,000 feet above sea level, high atop beautiful Beech Mountain where fantasies come to life RAIN OR SHINE.

The purchase of your ticket designates the time that you will be transported to the Land of OZ from "The Village" in the Resort of Ski Beech.

The Land of Oz opens at 9:30AM and limited tickets are available for entrance every hour. On Saturday the last bus leaves the parking lot for Oz at 3:30; Sunday at 2:30. The Park closes at 6:00PM.

Important: The OZ property has uneven paths, ramps and stairs and therefore is not wheel chair or stroller friendly. The weather on Beech Mountain can be cold and blustery, so please be prepared by dressing in layers and wearing comfortable shoes. Bring a jacket and an umbrella, just in case.
