Every year, thousands of incredible cars (and of course, their owners) ride into Pigeon Forge for an impressive display of classics, buckets, roadsters, collectors, street machines and more. And as one of the largest collector car events in the country, the Smoky Mountain Spring Rod Run is something that both car enthusiasts and casual onlookers won’t want to miss. Whether you spend your days drooling over classic cars or not, you will certainly be impressed with the amazing variety and work gathered in one place.
The Parkway in Pigeon Forge is the stage for this production, while the Grand Resort Convention Center is the main base. April 19th through April 21st, locals and visitors can browse the aisles of cars while admiring the shiny chrome, flawless paint, and smooth lines of hot rods that have been greatly cared for. If you want a good seat for the parade of cars down the Parkway, it’s a good idea to bring a chair and set up early. There will be several food and beverage vendors, so you can enjoy the great tastes of the area while checking out the cars.
For those looking to pick up something for their own beauty, there will be many parts and accessories vendors set up. Red Roof Mall and the Marines partner to raise money for Toys for Tots by selling display space in the parking lot. If you’re going to be a part of the Rod Run, this is a great way to have your space reserved and ready for you. You will also be getting a prime spot in the parking lot, so your car is sure to get plenty of attention. And of course, you’ll be helping with a great cause.
The Spring Rod Run is a family friendly event that brings people of all ages and backgrounds together. Stop by this April for good food, fun and some friendly competition. Browsing is free, so come out and enjoy spring in the Smoky Mountains.
