Fourth of July in Gatlinburg

Blog Home : Category Posts : Fourth of July in Gatlinburg

The Fourth of July in Gatlinburg is a special time of the year. With several celebrations, events, and more, it's time to experience the red, white, and blue in the Smoky Mountains. Whether you love massive fireworks shows or are all about the music while enjoying classic food, everyone in your group will enjoy a memorable holiday getaway.

Do Fourth of July Your Way

While in Gatlinburg, the options are nearly limitless when it comes to celebrating Independence Day with loved ones. The key to maximizing your fun is to know the fourth of July events in Gatlinburg ahead of time so you can tailor your plans accordingly. That's why we've compiled some all-time favorites to help prepare.

Midnight Parade

Without question, this is an excellent way to start your July 4th vacation on the right foot. Starting at 12:01 am, the midnight parade begins. With a history of 45 years, this is one parade you want to attend. First Responders, U.S. Veterans, military heroes, and more will be honored during the event.

In addition, you can count on excellent music throughout the event, with Conner Smith headlining this year. The parade will march through downtown Gatlinburg, starting at Baskins Creek Bypass on the East Parkway.

Gatlinburg Fireworks Show

If the holiday begins with a parade, it should end with an incredible fireworks show. The 20-minute fireworks display will occur at the Gatlinburg Space Needle and ends at 11 pm. The best part is that the display can be seen from any vantage point in Gatlinburg, letting you pick your favorite spot to enjoy the show.

Viewing Parties

Are you unable to get a good vantage point? Do you prefer the comfort of food and drink while watching the display? You're in luck since some favorites, like Ole Red, offer viewing parties starting at 7 pm with live music and a rooftop spot.

Another excellent option is the Gatlinburg SkyPark, which puts you on a mountain perch as tall as the Space Needle. Remember that these viewing parties and others require advance tickets, so act quickly to grab your spot.

Smoky Mountain Tunes and Tales

In addition to everything happening on the fourth, you and your guests will enjoy plenty of summer fun in Gatlinburg, starting with Smoky Mountain Tunes and Tales. Every evening throughout July, the streets come alive with storytelling adventure.

Throughout the event, you'll encounter costumed musical performers, dancers, and storytellers. Check it out between 6 pm to 10 pm daily to enjoy one of the local favorite things to do in Gatlinburg.

Cabin Splendor Counts

Another excellent way to ensure the perfect Fourth of July vacation is to grab one of our Gatlinburg cabins. With a wide selection of amenities and cabin sizes, you'll find the perfect fit. Grab a 1 bedroom cabin for a romantic getaway or a 4 bedroom vacation cabin for the family.

Add to your experience by staying in our game room cabins or our cabin rentals with a hot tub. No matter how you choose to enjoy your cabin, it'll feel like vacation bliss from start to finish.

Whether playing at the cabin or enjoying the greater Gatlinburg area, you'll love every moment of your fourth of July in Gatlinburg with those who matter most.
