This is the time of the year that everyone starts longing for all those great summer music festivals - warm weather, sunny skies, and tons of great live music. The summer months aren't too far off, so don't fret, but in the meantime, live in the now! Here at the Ramada in Pigeon Forge, we have the lowdown on all the best happenings in the area year-round. And because this is Pigeon Forge, that means there's always something great happening just around the corner! If you're in serious need for a healthy dose of live music, check out the Smoky Mountain Snowdown in Townsend next week!
From Thursday the 26th through Sunday the 29th, just a half hour's drive west of the Ramada, you'll find one of the biggest festivals of the season. All weekend long there will be a wealth of live music by singer-songwriters from all over the region. You're bound to discover some great new artists you've never heard of before! Not to mention, there will be a host of classes, competitions, and of course – tons of authentic country food!
Take a class on how to play the banjo or dulcimer like a true mountaineer, learn how to quilt, or perfect your fly-fishing ties at some of the many instructional demonstrations offered throughout the weekend. Or enjoy the spoils of the popular chili cook-off as well as plenty of other food catered by local and regional vendors.
It's all happening in Townsend next weekend. Be sure to check out their website for more info. Our staff will also be happy to point you in the direction of Townsend. Happy winter!
