It’s that time of the year again where we look into what activities the Smokies have in store for visitors coming in for the Thanksgiving weekend. Thanksgiving weekend is the biggest chance to build up holiday cheer for the upcoming Christmas season, and the opportunity to make memories that last forever for your family are widespread across the Smokies. You and your family won’t want to miss it!

Gatlinburg’s favorite W.L. Mills Auditorium events are back on this year between 11/21/17 to 11/27/17, and this year it even extends right into the starting Christmas events in early December. Gatlinburg Festival of Trees (11/22/17 – 11/27/17), The Great Smoky Mountains Thanksgiving Arts and Crafts Show (11/21/17 – 11/26/17) and Winterfest Tunes and Tales (11/24/17 and continues on each weekend until the 17th of December). And then, quite literally right after the 29th, the the Great Smoky Christmas Arts and Crafts Show continues on from the Thanksgiving show listed above between 11/27/17 and 12/6/17. These can all be found quite close to one another and will greatly hype up the coming Christmas for this year, just as it has for years before that.

Visit for more information on those events.

Also, those who might be interested in seeing fireworks on Thanksgiving day should go visit the Titanic Museum on the parkway. On the 23rd, Titanic will be holding a fireworks show, having musical entertainment by singer Caitlin Mesiano, and even have their own “fantasy” princess there to entertain the younger guests. You can see more info on this at

And then soon we’ll bring you even more info on Christmas events in the Smokies. Enjoy the holidays!
