Even after all these years, we are still crazy about fall in the Smokies. While we could easily write about our love for the cooler weather and vibrant foliage, today, we are instead going to share some of the best seasonal events to check out while visiting the mountains! Get your jacket zipped up, your coffee in hand, and let’s take an outdoor, Appalachian journey together!
Robert Tino’s Smoky Mountain Homecoming (October 2nd-4th)
Located on the farm of famed local artist Robert Tino, this weekend festival is a truly immersive journey into mountain culture and craft. From blacksmithing and basket weaving to pinto beans and cornbread, mountain life and East Tennessee flare are on full display. For the full homecoming experience, don’t miss out on the old fashioned church service that takes place under the
oak trees on Sunday morning; you won’t regret it!
Wears Valley Fall Festival (October 16th-18th)
If BBQ, crafts, obstacle courses, and inflatables for the kids sound like your idea of outdoor fun, Wears Valley is for you. This three-day festival features craftsman, incredible food, and live entertainment ranging from Southern Gospel to Elvis. For good food, good music, and fun for the entire family, check out the Wears Valley Fall Festival!
Kyker Farms (September 26th-October 31st)
On the “fall experience checklist”, “visit corn maze” sits at the top of the list. Kyker Farms features five different mazes, but the fun doesn’t stop there. With hayrides, a pumpkin patch, live animals, and even a paintball adventure, there is something for the entire family to enjoy at this 9th generation farm. Load up the kids and take in everything Kyker Farms has to offer!
