Gatlinburg, TN – Dolly Parton, one of this country’s greatest country singers, continues to outdo herself with this year’s Great Smoky Mountain Southern Gospel & Harvest Festival. Located in neighboring Pigeon Forge, this festival is thrown each year at Dollywood, a testament not just to the fabulous lady herself but to her favorite musical influences, as well as her fans! The festival lasts from September 29th to October 30th and is jam-packed with performances, singers, entertainers, and artists that are certain to delight everyone in your family, from the grand kids all the way up to their grandparents. And we’re excited that folks are staying in our Gatlinburg Cabin Rentals this fall in Gatlinburg.
Did we mention that the concerts are completely F-R-E-E?
Once you purchase your admission tickets to Dollywood, you can stay to watch any of the concerts playing that day, as well as admire the artistry of artisans who are on hand to showcase their handiwork, featuring some of the most talented artists in the Great Smoky Mountains. It will be hard to walk away empty-handed when there are so many unique, interesting, and downright beautiful items for sale that will look just perfect in your home.
After walking around the artist’s arena, listening to some free concerts, and just having a good ole time, you are certain to work up an appetite. There are plenty of down home Gatlinburgfavorites like Dollywood’s famous fried green tomatoes, a crowd-pleaser and a must-try for those who aren’t familiar with this tasty dish. As the weather starts to cool down you can easily spend all day at Dollywood enjoying all of the treats that Dolly has cooked up to share with her loyal fans.
When you are all tuckered out from singing gospel, eating fried green tomatoes, and buying some crafty items, you will be relieved to return back to your luxury cabin rental nestled deep in the Great Smoky Mountains. Settle in with a glass of wine in front of the fireplace, let the kids chill out in the home theater, or sit outside in a rocking chair gazing at the stars up above. Autumn is arguably one of the most beautiful times to enjoy the cabins of Elk Springs Resort.
