Oktoberfest at Ober Gatlinburg 2015

Sept 25- Nov 2, 2015

  Ober Gatlinburg is celebrating October with a fantastic festival featuring Bavarian-style food, drink and music, but you don’t have to don your finest lederhosen or dirndls to be a part of the fun.

 Octoberfest returns to its Gatlinburg-style roots with 38 days of merrymaking from September 25 through Nov. 2, 2015 as the resort commemorates the 205th anniversary of the popular festival held in Munich, Germany.The Bavarian Fun Makers Band, in authentic costumes, will perform traditional Bavarian folk dances,schuhplattling, oompah music, sing-a-longs, yodels and more with daily shows and multiple performances every day during Oktoberfest.  Special Oktoberfest Biers will be served along with traditional German wurst, schnitzel, sauerkraut, strudel, pretzels and more.

Oktoberfest was a popular event when the Heidelberg Castle operated its restaurant at Ober Gatlinburg in the 1980s.The first Oktoberfest was not really a festival at all, but the public celebration of the wedding of Crown Prince Ludwig I and Princess Therese of Bavaria on October 17, 1810. Held on a large meadow named the Theresienwiese in Munich, the party featured a horse race, beer, food, music and dancing. 

 If you have not had the chance to visit during October this is an amazing time to come visit our gorgeous area.  From business to business everyone participates in beautiful fall decor and festivities of the fall season. The smells of pumpkin spice and apples fill the air. Please call or visit our website and reserve your stay to experience fall in a true Southern fashion. We hope to see you very soon!

Pigeon Forge Fall Grand Rod Run at Leconte Center

 The 2015 Fall Grand Rod Run Pigeon Forge is tentatively scheduled to take place September 16-19.

Many participants and visitors to the fall rod run roll into town earlier in the week to “claim” parking spots along the strip and enjoy some of the restaurants and attractions before the majority of the crowd arrives on the weekend. If you have a vehicle you do not want entered into the actual car show, but want to park then we highly suggest arriving early in the week to get a spot on or near the parkway.

This Fall Rod Run 2015 is one of the most popular car shows in Pigeon Forge simply because of the cooler weather, lack of summertime visitors, and the slight chance of seeing some fall colors start to show! This Pigeon Forge rod run features thousands of hot rods and muscle cars of a years, makes, models, colors, and sizes.

The Fall Rod Run will be located at the LeConte Center which offers free parking and an incredible amount of indoor space for vendors, entertainment, etc. If you just want to see cars you can also plan on sitting along the parkway or take a stroll down the sidewalk to see the thousands of vehicles that will be in town.

 If you plan to enter your vehicle in the Pigeon Forge Fall Grand Run, click the links below to find the official website and registration form for this popular Pigeon Forge car show. Of course, you don’t have to “enter” your vehicle in the actual rod run to be a part of the fun…you can simply cruise the parkway or find parking spots along the street to show off your ride.
 If you are planning a trip during this time give us a call or visit our website to reserve your stay.
