Hop Over to Pigeon Forge this Spring

2016 Easter Events in Pigeon Forge

Easter is a time to celebrate with family and friends. It’s a time for beautiful weather, reflections, good food, egg hunts, and quality time with those you love. If you want to do something new for 2016, take a trip to the Great Smoky Mountains. Along with being surrounded by the gorgeous mountain scenery, you’ll find there are some great events going on in downtown Pigeon Forge. Spend lots of time with the Easter Bunny, get some great photos of the kids, and have some fun during these events in Pigeon Forge.

If you’ll be here before or after Easter, there are many more things going on in the area. Celebrate Irish Month at the Titanic during the month of March, showcase your skills (or learn new ones) at the 22nd Annual A Smoky Mountain Quiltfest March 15-19, or head to Dollywood theme park April 1-18 for Dollywood’s Festival of Nations! Want to get outdoors? Participate in the Spring Smoky Mountain Trout Tournament on April 2-3 for a chance at cash and local prizes! There really is something for everyone.
