If you just so happen to be walking along the Parkway in downtown Gatlinburg TN between June 13 and August don’t be alarmed if you see some people in some weird costumes. During those dates the Smoky Mountain Tunes & Tales will be held. Smoky Mountain Tunes & Tales takes place in downtown Gatlinburg TN every day starting at 5pm and ending at 10pm. Performers, magicians and storytellers will travel into downtown Gatlinburg on a horse-drawn wagon and the fun will start there. These performers will be dressed to grab your attention and to tell you what they have to share. Stories from the 1800’s to present will be told as well as acted out. Make sure you’re in town to witness some of these tunes and tales during June 13- August 9. The stories will give you memories that you can take back home with you.

There are several acts that will be performed by the Smoky Mountain Tunes & Tales performers and storytellers.
