“Fall” in Love with Gatlinburg

Each autumn, the Great Smoky Mountains foliage changes from the vibrant greens of spring and summer to brilliant hues of gold, red, orange, and bright yellow, until the mountains are ablaze with bright fall color. This dazzling display, along with the city’s new fall decorations, provides the ideal backdrop for 2019’s extended Smoky Mountain Harvest Festival. Beginning September 6 and lasting through November 22, this year’s festival will showcase all the area’s favorite fall events and activities.

Be sure to join us for Taste of Gatlinburg on September 12, Oktoberfest at Ober September 27 – October 3, and the Smoky Mountain Trout Tournament from October 4-5. Don't miss Smoky Mountain Harvest Festival Tunes and Tales from October 2-24, the Gatlinburg Craftsmen’s Fair happening October 10-27, and our famous Chili Cookoff on November 9. And, don’t forget about all our wonderful winter activities, when Gatlinburg will be decked out for the holidays! So, make your plans to visit us soon—we’re betting you’ll “fall” in love and never want to leave.
