Gatlinburg Craftsmen’s Fair

If you love the art and culture of the Great Smokies then you’ll certainly want to add visiting the annual Gatlinburg’s Craftsmen’s Fair to your itinerary. It’s a wonderful way to take in work from countless artists, experience their gifts first hand and support them all while taking home some really special items for yourself and loved ones.

Smoky Mountain Harvest Festival

From the time the first leaf begins to show it’s true colors until the last leaf falls to the ground, the City of Gatlinburg celebrates the season throughout the town. The Smoky Mountain Harvest Festival includes seasonal events that fill up the days and cute scarecrows line the streets. Lovers of all things autumn will be in heaven when visiting. Everyone else will learn to love the season just as much before they roll out of town and head back home. 

Gatlinburg Chili Cookoff

If you can’t make it into town during October then set your eyes on mid-November and the best chili in the Smokies. Presented by Bush’s Chili Beans, the Chili Cook-off is one foodie fest that you won’t want to miss! 

Veteran’s Day Celebration

The annual Veteran’s Day Celebration is held at Rocky Top Sports World. The event is free to the public and it’s a great way to honor those that have given so much to our beautiful country.
