Vroom, vroom, vroom — ah, the sweet sound of hot rods roaring along the Parkway in Pigeon Forge makes locals and visitors alike smile. Summertime brings cool rides from across the country into town for classic car shows that feature corrals, contests, and cash prizes. And with so many car shows cancelled earlier this year, open car shows in Pigeon Forge for summer 2020 are eager to start.
So, get ready to make your way to the Great Smoky Mountains to check out all the classic and modern cars, find rare parts to outfit your own hot rods, and see which competitors take the grand prizes! Need a place to kick back and relax after sunny days at the car shows? Opt for a Pigeon Forge cabin that features an easy drive, paved parking, and bonus amenities, like a hot tub or private pool to enjoy.
