Memorial Day has always been the jumping off point for summer fun, even as we take some time to pay homage to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. As we at The Cabin Rental Store travel, picnic, or watch fireworks explode in the night sky, their heroism is never far from our minds, and if you are planning your own Gatlinburg Memorial Day escape, this guide to the different events taking place over the long weekend will allow you to celebrate the holiday to its fullest.


The National Anthem, Ripley’s Believe it or Not, Gatlinburg

Just hearing our National Anthem being played gives us goosebumps, but before recently we would rarely sing along because we often forget the words, a problem that happens no more! Ripley’s Believe it or Not has created an exhibit of license plates from all over the United States with the words of the anthem imprinted on the plates! Spending a few minutes reading through the words (you won’t be judged for singing aloud!) will have the patriotic spirit take over your soul. And when you’re done, there’s an entire building of fun things to see!


Family Fest in the Smokies 2019, Gatlinburg Convention Center

This three-day event offers a musical extravaganza of some of your favorite family friendly performers. From the Gaither Vocal Band to the Hoppers and Gregg Ritchie, the music keeps playing and the excitement keeps growing! These all-American performers remind us (in very talented ways!) of the important things in life. This is one of the best things you can do for Gatlinburg Memorial Day!


Smoky Mountain Opry, 2046 Parkway, Pigeon Forge

Billed as the Ultimate Variety Show, this show is one of our favorites, offering a mixture of everything that makes America great. From magicians and jugglers to singers and dancers, every minute of the extravaganza is filled with magic, excitement, and fun!


Backyard Barbecues

You don’t have to put on an extravagant party to pay homage to the soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifices on our behalf; they did it so we can have barbecues in the backyard, eat ice cream on a hot summer day, and laugh and play with our families under velvety blue skies dotted with twinkling stars. Take a moment to remember how lucky you are and send a silent thanks to the great beyond. This Gatlinburg Memorial Day is guaranteed to be a memorable one!
