Autumn at Oz

Longtime visitors to the High Country may remember the Land of Oz theme park, which delighted kids of all ages during the 1970s.

The town of Beech Mountain hosts an annual Autumn at Oz celebration the first weekend of October.

Guests at Autumn at Oz will tour Auntie Em’s and Uncle Henry’s farm, meet Dorothy and friends along the Yellow Brick Road, and watch out for the Wicked Witch of the West and her horrible hordes of flying monkeys.

Tours during Autumn at Oz take two to three hours and are not wheelchair or stroller accessible.

At the end of the tour, you’ll be able to visit a mini-museum and purchase souvenirs of your very own trip to the Land of Oz.
