All through the months of June and July, Gatlinburg is alive with costumed storytellers, historical re-enactors, and musicians strolling the streets in downtown. This isn’t just another day in one of the best cities in the Smoky Mountains – this is the Smoky Mountain Tunes & Tales festival! Back for its 12th season, this daily festival offers fun for everyone from Friday, June 10, through July 29. This seven-week-long event is a real crowd pleaser, so be sure to nab your reservation at a cozy Gatlinburg cabin before they are all gone!
The Smoky Mountain Tunes & Tales is one of the most beloved traditions in Gatlinburg, letting history, entertainment, and plain old fun join together in a way that you can’t find anywhere else. But every vacation should also be relaxing. When you’ve had your fill of the daily festivities, you don’t want to retire to a cramped room overlooking a noisy highway or street. Gatlinburg cabins are located just minutes away from the festival, but are secluded enough to offer you many great benefits. Spread out in comfort with your whole family, enjoy the silence, and relax with some modern amenities.
Once you’ve had your fun walking through the Parkway to check out everything Tunes & Tales has to offer, head back to your cabin in Gatlinburg such as the Point of View. This cabin sleeps up to 10, and has tons of space for your family. Enjoy Wi-Fi, a jetted bath tub, a private pool table, four full bathrooms, access to the private association swimming pool, cable TV, and your very own hot tub! You can bring your furry family members as well, and the fully equipped kitchen is ready for you to cook your family’s favorites – just bring food.
The performers arrive every night during this seven-week festival at 6 p.m. in the center of downtown. You can enjoy a relaxing day in your Gatlinburg cabin, or check out the many fun ways to explore the Smoky Mountains, such as hiking, zip lining, or horseback tours. Then head out for a night of fun as the sidewalks of downtown transform. Renowned storytellers and performers bring you local history, folklore, and culture in an interactive experience that is perfect for visitors of all ages.
