Arts & Entertainment

Gatlinburg’s beauty has long inspired artists and musicians to capture the soul and sounds of the Smoky Mountains in song and on canvas. Today, visitors can find inspiration in Great Smoky Mountains Arts and Crafts Community where working artisans carry on the age-old traditions of past generations. 

The spirit of the mountain people comes alive in music. Meet characters from the past during Smoky Mountain Tunes and Tales. Or take in Gatlinburg’s growing live music scene in many of our local restaurants and bars.  

Live theater ranges from vaudeville, slapstick comedy to mind-blowing magic. Learn more here.
