2014 Rescue Squad Ramp Festival
Apr 27 @ 11:00 am – 3:00 pm
2014 Rescue Squad Ramp Festival @ Rescue Squad Building | Robbinsville | North Carolina | United States

Ramp season is almost here and a big draw is the Graham County Rescue Squad’s Annual Ramp Fest which is scheduled for the last week of April. Ramps, also known as wild leeks are native to the Appalachian Mountains region. A longtime favorite among local folks, ramps have a strong garlic-like aroma and taste like spring onions.

Sit a spell or grab and go!  The dinner features fried fish & chicken with fixings, dessert & drink (until the food runs out).  This is the rescues squads annual fundraiser and they will need to have a very successful year to continue the tradition next year.

There are lots of GREAT things to do in Graham County!  After the dinner, head out to the Cherohala Skyway for a hike or go and view the largest dam east of the Mississippi, Fontana Dam!  If that hasn’t peaked your curiosity, go and view the majestic trees at Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest or rent a boat on Santeetlah or Fontana Lakes.
