October Events Around Gatlinburg

Blog Home : Category Posts : October Events Around Gatlinburg

There's nothing like visiting Gatlinburg and the rest of the Smokies, no matter the time of year. With that in mind, there's something special about the fall season that inspires people to come out in droves. Maybe it's the leaves changing color. Perhaps it's the cool breeze winding through the mountains.

If that speaks to you, maybe consider an impromptu trip in October for you and your family. With plenty of fun October events around Gatlinburg, you'll make fun memories that stay with you long after you've gone back home.

Exploring Things to do in Gatlinburg in the Fall

Without a doubt, the fall season is packed with tourists every single year, and you most likely have ideas about what you want to do on your next visit. However, we thought we'd help you out by providing some options to consider, such as:

Kyker Farms in the Fall

This destination makes for a perfect family-friendly outing in the Smokies, thanks to the many activities available from September 25th to October 31st. Explore the corn mazes, go on a hayride, let the little ones visit the petting zoo, and end the day with a fun bonfire.

Best of all, this activity is affordable, with tickets ranging from $9 for ages 3-5 to $14.50 for ages six and up!


Are you heading to Gatlinburg with a group of friends and leaving the kids at home? Oktoberfest at Ober Gatlinburg is a must in October before going back home. Running from September 24th to October 31st, you and the others will enjoy Bavarian-inspired food like schnitzel, bratwurst, strudel, and more. Plus, there'll be plenty of drinks and activities, ensuring an excellent time for everyone!

Wears Valley Fall Fest

Just outside of Gatlinburg, you'll find the lovely Wears Valley area. While mostly quiet, you can enjoy some fun at the Fall Fest from October 15-17. During these three days, everyone can enjoy seeing different crafters in action, entertainers, and a range of activities.

Fall Gatlinburg Craftsmen's Fair

Do you like crafts or seeing the experts make their creations? You'll want to visit the Fall Gatlinburg Craftsmen's Fair. Throughout the event, you can watch demonstrations, view the products made, and even do some shopping for that perfect souvenir to bring back home.

Simply Exploring the Smokies

Sometimes, the best option is the one that lets you experience nature's beauty firsthand. During your trip, make sure to set aside time to visit the national park for some of the best views. Even better, the national park and various locales within are entirely free. We recommend checking out the following spots:

  • Clingmans Dome
  • Cades Cove
  • Newfound Gap
  • Fontana Dam

The best part about exploring the national park is that it runs through the entire Smokies, meaning you and the others can discover plenty of hidden paths, viewing spots, and possibly even some of the local wildlife. One way or another, you're in for a fun adventure.

Start Your Vacation on the Right Foot

There are so many things to see and do when visiting Gatlinburg; you can't possibly do all of them in one day. For this reason, the best way to start your vacation on the right foot is to claim your spot in one of our beautiful Gatlinburg cabins.

Whether you need a group-sized cabin large enough to accommodate everyone or desire specific amenities like our cabins with pool access, we have the Gatlinburg vacation rental you need for an incredible stay. Don't wait a moment longer to enjoy the perfect Gatlinburg vacation by checking out one of these fun October events around Gatlinburg!
