Have Your own Event at Apple Valley!

Looking for a place to host your group gathering? Apple Valley Country Stores & Café can help!

We are conveniently located off Lamar Alexander Parkway in Townsend and have ample parking for your whole party. We can whip up some food that is sure to leave everyone full and happy, whether the special occasion is a birthday, an anniversary or just because it’s a Tuesday! Ice cream and fried apple pies will make it memorable and you can wash it down with a brewed ice tea, cola or Calf Killer premium craft beer on tap.

We feature several areas for private functions that we can tailor make for your event, reception, or meeting. We have a private room off the main cafe that can seat 40, a private deck that seats 75 on US 321 for a "patio" event, and an indoor/outdoor venue adjacent to our property that can seat up to 100. We have several places for tents on flat grass that can accommodate up to 200 people.

We can even arrange for a tent with a deejay, catered food options and a beer garden. Your guests can even book a Dancing Bear Cabin within walking distance so they can relax and enjoy the occasion.

If you’re looking for something a bit more elaborate, we also book weddings, reunions and corporate meetings/retreats for Dancing Bear next door. Call Christi at (800) 369-0111 ext 2 to book your event or ask us a question.
