Looking for some classic activities that just scream "The Great Smoky Mountains"? If you're going to be in town next weekend, you won't want to miss the 13th Annual Heritage Day at the Old Mill in Pigeon Forge. It's sure to provide you with that authentic Smoky Mountain experience. The festival will be held Saturday, September 24th at The Old Mill, just a few minutes south of The Ramada along the parkway.
The fun starts Saturday morning at 10 a.m. down at the Old Mill. Get there early for the start of Heritage Day where you can learn more about the time-honored traditions and people of the Smoky Mountains. There will be world-class bluegrass and folk music throughout the day, as well as traditional clog and square dancing.
You can also learn many trades of the area in craft making classes, quilting demonstrations, check out antique engines, and learn how to make moonshine! There's also plenty of fun to be had for the kids with a petting zoo, pumpkin painting, an old fire truck, and more.
This is a free event and is sure to be fun for all involved. You won't want to miss Heritage Day - it's a local favorite of us here in Pigeon Forge and a great way to learn more about our wonderful little corner of the world. Hope to see you there!
