Smoky Mountain Harvest Festival
September 6, 2019 - November 25, 2019
To fully embrace the fall season, the City of Gatlinburg is expanding Smoky Mountain Harvest Festival to 12 weeks beginning September 6 through November 25, 2018. The extension of Harvest Festival offers visitors more time to plan a trip to the Smokies during the peak of the fall season.
“We could not live in a more picturesque area for viewing Fall color,” says Mark Adams, Gatlinburg CVB CEO/President. “We want to capitalize on the seasonal beauty by extending our Harvest Festival to the end of November thus giving visitors more opportunities to experience Autumn in the Smokies.”
As the temperatures drop, the festivities continue during Gatlinburg Winter Magic beginning November 22 running through the end of February. Traditional holiday events will run as scheduled including Festival of Trees on Thanksgiving weekend, Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Holiday Craft Shows, Fantasy of Lights Christmas Parade, Winter Magic Tunes and Tales, Trolley Ride of Lights and New Year’s Eve Celebration.
Gatlinburg is rolling out all the stops with seasonal decorations. Gatlinburg Harvest Festival will feature over the top fall decorations including new life-size, 3-dimensional Scarecrow people. Likewise, Gatlinburg Winter Magic will feature new decorations including very merry, life-sized Snow people that capture the magic of the season.
