The Venue

Family fun in downtown Fountain since 2004, serving fresh-squeezed orangeade & lemonade, like they used to make, in East Carolina's best place to hear live music

R.A. Fountain, General Store, is a relic from the rural American small town past that comes to life every Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and 4 or 5 times a month for concerts of acoustic Carolina music.

    Fresh-squeezed lemonade, orangeade, and limeade, using a secret recipe developed in the early 2000s by Liza Allen & Keith Parham, and later improved upon by Landy Spain. No artificial ingredients.

    Our rotating cast of flavors of Simply Natural Creamery ice cream currently includes vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, salted caramel, butter pecan, coffee, pistachio, and mint chocolate chip.

  • Cold Bottled Classic Drinks

    We stock a variety of cold bottled drinks, better because they’re made with cane sugar.
