During the event, you'll experience spring-themed art installations, live music seven days a week, new blooms from flowers, and a chef-inspired seasonal menu for a fantastic experience.

Don't forget to set aside time for a nighttime visit! At night, the park takes on a whole new life with twinkling lights and colorful displays, creating a gorgeous night for everyone.

Smoky Mountain Trout Tournament

There's nothing like grabbing a rod and going fishing except when it's a huge event open to adults and children. From April 1st through April 2nd, you can compete in multiple categories and get back in touch with nature while enjoying time with your loved ones. Remember that all Gatlinburg and state fishing regulations must be followed to participate.

Summer in the Smokies

Once summer hits, things start to heat up to new heights. The "Summer in the Smokies" celebration starts June 10th. During the event, you'll enjoy seeing works from Artist Sean Kenney's Nature Connects, sculptures built with LEGO bricks.
