Spring Is An Eventful Season In The Smokies

Posted by Phil Rodgers in Things to Do

Smoky Mountain Railroad is operating its special Bunny Hopper Express train through the end of March - a 4.5-hour train ride through the mountains of Western North Carolina. The Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg KOA is having a special Easter weekend March 29 through 31, and there's also an egg hunt at Wear Farm City Park in Pigeon Forge. Lastly, look for Easter at Ober Mountain in Gatlinburg on March 31. It consists of a morning sunrise service 2,700 feet above Gatlinburg.

And that's not the end of the fun when it comes to special events in the Smokies. Spring is always a time for car shows, and that continues March 18 through 23 with the Ponies in the Smokies 2024 show at Sevierville Convention Center. If you're into crafts, be sure to visit the Great Smoky Easter Arts & Crafts Show at the Gatlinburg Convention Center March 23 through 30. This annual event showcases the craftwork and artisans of Gatlinburg's Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community as well as others from around the country.

There are also general happenings worth mentioning that aren't special events per se. For example, this is the time of year when all the music theaters that went dark during the winter months turn their marquees back on and stage a wide variety of live productions in Pigeon Forge and beyond. As we head toward summer, visitors have access to the full array of entertainment, everything from country to gospel to rock music as well as live competitions, dinner shows, comedy, magic and much more.

This is also when you see more and more outdoor attractions open for the season. For example, Smoky Mountain Ziplines in Pigeon Forge is up and running for its 2024 season, offering seven-zipline canopy tours that deliver both thrills and stunning views of the mountains.

As for us at Goats on the Roof, we're here all year, but we're surely excited about the arrival of spring as new life begins to stir in Pigeon Forge and the Great Smoky Mountain. We hope you can find time to be a part of the action this year and that you stop by for a visit. Until then, the goats say “Hey.”
