Gatlinburg event season begins in spring!
Springtime in the Smoky Mountains is a magical place filled with hopeful signs of longer days to come. The wildflowers start to blossom, the local wildlife shrug off the winter’s chill and become active throughout the forests, and local attractions such as Dollywood, Anakesta, and the many mountain adventure parks and zipline courses begin opening their doors and welcoming guests again! It’s truly a beautiful time of year.
If it's being secluded in the great outdoors or family entertainment that brings you to The Smokies this spring, you'll find plenty of springtime activities to do! In addition to the mountains coming to life in March and April, it is also host to many must-see events throughout the two-month span! Some of our favorites happening this spring include:
