Summer is a great time to visit the Smokies so, if you are in need of a vacation then start planning to come to Gatlinburg, Tennessee in early June. There are so many activities going on. June kicks off with some very fun things to do and this year something new is coming to town. This year Gatlinburg is proud to announce that the 2010 Old Reel Collectors Associations (ORCA) National Conference is coming to town during June 3 through June 5, 2010.
Celebrate Southern Gospel Music with Bill and Gloria Gaither along with many of their performing friends. On May 28-30 get the family together to go listen to a night filled with harmonious voices and evening worship in Gatlinburg TN near the Smoky Mountains. There will be many singers and speakers for you to enjoy. There will be 3 different services held to celebrate Southern Gospel in Gatlinburg TN and the Smoky Mountains.
It’s time for the Gatlinburg Fine Arts Festival again. This will mark the 6th annual festival and it will be held on May 15 – 16, 2010. This two day event attracts many artists but only few are chosen. Take advantage of the festival for fine art displays, great music and delicious food. This family friendly event is going to be huge! A portion of the proceeds from the Festival will go to Arrowmont School of Arts & Crafts, the Sevier County Arts Council and the Gatlinburg Boys & Girls Club art program.
Gather the clan, load the Collies and put on your kilt. This year’s Gatlinburg Scottish Festival and Games will be held on May 15 and 16 but not before they have their annual parade down the Parkway in downtown on May 14 starting at 6pm. If you are a Scot then this is a great way to celebrate your heritage and meet others to create memories. Not Scottish? Doesn’t matter, come watch the games take place!
