The Smoky Mountain Opry


A long-standing staple in the Great Smoky Mountains, the Smoky Mountain Opry brings together pageantry, incredible costumes, high-flying performers, exciting music, and amazing talent for some of the best family-friendly fun you can find. If you’re looking for a night out as a couple, a group, with some of your friends, or for some quality family time, the Smoky Mountain Opry is a great choice.

As the area’s largest musical variety show, the Smoky Mountain Opry offers excitement and something new at every turn. It’s part musical, party country show, part dance, part night-with-the-swing-band, and a little bit of everything in between. As you watch the talented performers on stage, you’ll be dazzled by the laser light shows, pyrotechnics, detailed and glittering costumes, and stories the show tells.

You may think the Smoky Mountain Opry is just about classic country music, but it’s so much more than that.

  • Frank Sinatra
  • Janis Joplin
