Each year the Great Smoky Mountains National Park hosts the “Music of the Mountains” festival where local bands and artists gather to share their tunes. This year the event will be held from April 8 to 10, featuring more local musicians than every before. Located just minutes from┬áour Gatlinburg Cabins, you will not want to miss out on this famous Gatlinburg event.
What is better than three days of local music to celebrate the traditions of the Great Smoky Mountains? A day of free music, that’s what! While the festivities kick off on the 8th you can bring the whole family along for a day of complimentary music on April 9 at the Sugarlands Visitor Center. If you want to make the most out of this musical weekend then you will want to buy your tickets now for the kick-off event. It is held at the Great Smoky Mountain Heritage Center and starts at 7 p.m. At just five dollars per ticket there is no reason why you shouldn’t attend this festive event.
After two days of music you might be tuckered out, but you will want to save some energy for the final event, held at the Smoky Mountains Visitor Center. For just $4 you can enjoy hours of music with your loved ones, other visitors to Gatlinburg and the locals. This tradition of celebrating mountain music was started back in 2005 by the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and it has been highly anticipated each year since then. Whether you stop by for one event or try to attend them all, you do not want to miss out on this local favorite.
