Smoky Mountain Events
When: September 7, 2018 thru November 25, 2018
To fully embrace the fall season, the City of Gatlinburg is expanding Smoky Mountain Harvest Festival to 12 weeks beginning Friday, September 7 through Sunday, 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.
Fall events will continue as in year's past including the traditional Chili Cookoff on Wednesday, November 7. The Winter Fest lights will be turned on that night, but there will not be an "official" kickoff ceremony. The popular Trolley Ride of Lights will begin as scheduled on November 8 and run nightly through December 31, then continue only on weekends through the end of January.
