    We will be constructing the BIG Saturday bonfire and also build the Friday night fire for the TAG Fall Cave-In, perform campsite cleanups, and many other projects, Chainsaws are needed (along with proper safety equipment such as chaps and eye protection); also weed eaters & loppers for clearing campsites and common areas. As always, camping will be available and WORKERS will be fed (thanks to our wonderful work weekend food crew). Volunteers will also receive a super duper TAG Fall Cave in Gift.  Hope to see everyone there! 

    While not required, RSVP through the event page on our website is encouraged to help us best plan for food.

    For Any Questions, contact the super awesome cave in chair, Tamara LeSage by email at  caveinchair@dogwoodcitygrotto.org or any member of the Cave In Advisory Board or Grotto Board of Directors.

    She’s back for round two! After doing a fantastic job last year, Tamara LeSage has been appointed as the 2019 TAG Fall Cave In Chair at the recommendation of the Cave In Advisory Board. Tamara has been around the TAG Fall Cave In for many years and puts a lot into the event in various ways. We are looking forward to see how she will top last year's event!

The annual attendance has been over 1,000 folks from across the world in the past few years. The proceeds from the TAG Fall Cave In are given back to our caving community in the form of grants. In 2018, $6,000 were given to various requestors to finance a variety of caving related projects.

    Aiyeee!!!! Bring ya beads Saturday night and party on down with this years Saturday Night Band, Roux Du Bayou.  Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler!!!



    What people are saying

    "Nothing says "Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler" (Let the Good Times Roll) Like Cajun music and Roux du Bayou plays authentic cajun music that truly engages the audience with their infectious energy and style. They performed at our last two Mardi Gras themed "Alive After Five" programs and our audience loves them. When that cajun accordian and fiddle starts stirring up the dane floor, it's easy to feel like you're down on the bayou even in the hills of East Tennessee!!"
