Tunes & Tales is a summer-long street performance event featuring costumed musical performers, storytellers and artisans portraying characters from time periods as far back as 1800.
This popular seven-week event truly highlights one of Gatlinburg’s greatest assets in the walkabout through the city that provides guests with an interactive, educational and entertaining experience the whole family can enjoy.
The collection of personalities and performers arrive nightly at 6 p.m. in the center of town. Visitors witness a magical transformation of sidewalk to stage as the characters disperse along the downtown Parkway for an evening of entertainment and storytelling.
The City also hosts a Winter Magic Tunes & Tales event featuring a capella carolers on weekends between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Gatlinburg’s Smoky Mountain Tunes & Tales is an official activity of the Gatlinburg Convention and Visitors Bureau.
