The Spring Rod Run in Pigeon Forge

Spring is in the air. Birds are chirping, the grass is green again, flowers are blooming, and the hot rods are...revving? One sure-fire sign of spring in Pigeon Forge is the annual arrival of a brigade of throwback and vintage cars and trucks from all over the country who make the pilgrimage to the Smokies to show off their stuff at the Spring Rod Run. Whether you're a die-hard auto enthusiast or just looking for something fun to check out in Pigeon Forge next week, the Spring Rod Run is great fun for everyone!


From April 6th through the 8th, the LeConte Center becomes an epicenter of all things classic cars. From hot rods to racers and everything in between, you'll get to see the coolest custom classics all souped up and ready to go! Aside from the general swap meet, there will also be an array of competitions held throughout the weekend, with a grand prize of $8,000 awarded to the best car.

In addition to all the cool cars, there will also be tons of activities, live entertainment, and great local food vendors on site. Bring the whole family out for a day of fun in Pigeon Forge! If you're not going to be in town for this one though, don't sweat it - the Rod Run will be back in the fall (September 14 - 16)  so maybe go ahead and book your reservation with us here at the Ramada early!
