Thanksgiving Events in the Smoky Mountains For 2016


Smoky Mountain Winterfest begins right after the end of Harvest Festival in the Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee. This is technically the longest seasonal celebration we have in our region going from roughly the second week of November until the end of February. We celebrate it in three parts – Thanksgiving, Christmas and the post-Holidays Winterfest.

In this article, we’ll focus on the upcoming events for the Thanksgiving portion of Winterfest.
