The Smoky Mountain Music Festival is at one location. We are proud that a competent staff, most that have been employed since 1983, is on site to provide consistent and professional assistance. The Smoky Mountain Music Festival is truly a festival that has many participants each weekend. Week after week, our festival includes ensembles in all categories which sustain the integrity of the competition. The judges are among the most competent musicians and educators in the profession. Gatlinburg is one of the safest resort towns in America. It is perfectly safe to allow students freedom in this crime-free resort. The town is conveniently located and, besides the natural beauty of the great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gatlinburg has many attractions and entertainment facilities. There is a great relationship between the city officials and the festival.Thanks to them, the festival facilities are excellent. The Gatlinburg Convention Center is used for concert, jazz, indoor auxiliary competition and choral competition, and the main street is blocked off for the parade of bands.
