It never fails about this time of the year--all individuals start looking forward to fall and the cool brisk air of Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountains.

The beauty of the autumn season in the Smokies is a compliment to the culture of the region. The sights of the lush forests and greenery of the area changing into a wide variety of gorgeous colors and hues seems to bring out the best in everyone, tourist and resident alike. The people of the Smoky Mountains seem to literally become possessed by the fall season, and this becomes apparent in all the activities and events held by these individuals. One occasion where this fact is especially apparent is the Gatlinburg Taste of Autumn fundraising event, being held at Gatlinburg Convention Center on Thursday, September 24th.

The spirit of autumn and the culinary skills of the chefs and individuals from approximately twenty area restaurants businesses and restaurants come together to form this beneficial and delicious affair! To gain access, all that is required of visitors is to come ready with a $25 donation for the United Way of Sevier County and, of course, an empty stomach! 100% of the proceeds brought in by this event will be going to support this charitable organization, which provides funding for local area non-profit and human service agencies. This means that visitors can have both their consciences and their stomachs satisfied, as this donation gives you access to an all-you-can-eat tour of the various dishes that are made available during the course of the evening. Area restaurants that have prepared food for this event in the past include the Smoky Mountain Brewery, Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., Cherokee Grill, Smoky’s Pub and Grill, Calhoun’s Restaurant, and many more.

Aside from the fine dining you’re sure to experience, this event also features live music, door prizes, and a benefit auction. With so much to involve yourself in, you must not miss this celebration of autumn in the Smokies, featuring good food for a good cause and much more!

One sure fire way to experience the beauty of autumn this fall is to reserve on of our Gatlinburg cabins. Sure, downtown Gatlinburg has plenty to offer its travelers during Taste Of Autumn, but to truly experience the Smoky Mountains you need to be tucked away in seclusion in one of our cabin rentals. Start planning your vacation because autumn is a very busy time for the Smoky Mountain area.
