Smoky Mountain Harvest Festival

To fully embrace the fall season, the City of Gatlinburg is expanding Smoky Mountain Harvest Festival beginning mid-September through late November. The extension of the Harvest Festival offers visitors more time to plan a trip to the Smokies during the peak of the fall season.

Gatlinburg is rolling out all the stops again with seasonal decorations. Gatlinburg Harvest Festival will feature over-the-top fall displays including life-size, 3-dimensional scarecrow people.
