Check Out this List of the Best Springtime Events Gatlinburg Has to Offer
There are plenty of attractions in Gatlinburg that are open year-round, like dining, restaurants, and amusements, plus the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, but spring in Gatlinburg means a wide variety of activities that last only a couple of days or a week. Below are a few suggestions for Gatlinburg events that would make for a fun trip to the area and make sure you check out our luxurious cabin rentals and save on accommodation over a hotel.
Rope your horses and bring them to Gatlinburg for Ponies in the Smokies, a gathering of mustang cars from all over. Tickets are expected to sell out for this event, so if you love classic styles and gorgeous cars, then book now.
Spring in Gatlinburg also means more events outdoors and the 21st Annual Smoky Mountain Trout Tournament is sure to draw fishing enthusiasts from all over. Bring your single-hook, handheld rod and you could win everything from the grand prize of $500 to amusement park passes, fishing gear, and more.
It’s a great excuse for moms or dads to enjoy time with the kids while the other one fishes. We even have several cabins located on the Little Pigeon River, where the competition takes place, like Hanky Panky and Skinny Dippin’.
April 12 – 14
Two events go hand-in-hand in the second weekend of the month. Hands-On Gatlinburg is a great way to learn that new skill you have always wanted or sample a variety of crafts. Combine an arts weekend with the Smoky Mountain WineFest, with 16 Tennessee wineries offering their fare and the Gatlinburg Wine Tour taking in local wineries.
April 20 – 28
There are plenty of Gatlinburg events planned for National Park Week, suitable for families, casual outdoor lovers, and those in need of a challenge. Choose from a variety of special programs and events from friendly and knowledgeable park rangers. The Wildflower Pilgrimage offers professionally guided walks through the Smokies, as well as photography, history, and nature workshops.
Meanwhile, the Mountain Man Memorial March is a great way of honouring America’s fallen heroes. If you have known anyone or lost a loved one, or simply want to support the cause, don a 35-pound pack and walk 26.2 miles so that there is “No Man Left Behind”.
We even have three cabins located in the Smoky Mountains, perfect for celebrating National Park Week. One-bedroom Cuddle Up is great for a romantic retreat, while Wandering Bear Lodge is great for a larger family or a couples’ trip. Nearby four-bedroom Smokies Edge is one of the most luxurious cabins in the Smokies.
However you choose to celebrate spring in Gatlinburg, our cabins are surprisingly affordable and contain every modern convenience to which you are accustomed. Enjoy Gatlinburg events with plenty of luxurious extras in a peaceful and spacious cabin, but book now while there is still space!
Mountain Air Cabin Rentals vacation homes are located throughout the Smoky Mountains: Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and Wears Valley. We are close to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Dollywood, Ripley's Aquarium, many dinner shows and theaters, local arts and crafts, and a variety of other activities.
