The early part of the year can be a bit slow compared to the end of the previous year.

You, treasured guest, have chosen this early part of the new decade to visit Gatlinburg, knowing that you can count on us at The Cabin Rental Store to offer up some fun events to keep you entertained. And you were right! Following this guide to early 2020 events in Gatlinburg guarantees that you will be starting off the new year in the very best of ways!
Gatlinburg Winter Magic Trolley Ride of Lights, January 18th
Even if Christmas is over, it doesn’t mean that all the magic has left the mountains. The colorful lights look so pretty against the snow and mountain backdrop; we leave them up a little longer than you would expect, and you can see them all when you climb aboard our specially designed trolleys! Say one last hurrah for Christmas and enjoy the beauty without having to fight the crowds.
Winter Heritage Festival, January 24th and 25th
Winter in Gatlinburg is a special time for us, and we love to celebrate it with this special festival held at the Great Smoky Mountains Heritage Center. For two days every year, you can learn all about the history of our unique hometown with presentations given by local historians. Discover the stories behind the scenes of Myer’s Cemetery, learn about the Cherokee presence in the area and how misguided settlers chased them away, and enjoy the sounds of two of our own singing the songs of the area. A cast iron lunch costing only $10 is offered on Saturday, allowing guests to enjoy a taste of the town; beans, greens, cornbread, cobbler, and a drink is what’s being served.
Rose Glen Festival, February 22nd
The Sevierville Convention Center, located at 202 Gist Creeks Road in Sevierville, plays host to an event we in Gatlinburg anxiously await each year. The pinch of Christmas shopping beyond our budgets has been forgotten and the joy of finding treasures both old and new gets our hearts beating faster! Antique stores, flea markets and local galleries come together to feature their best products in this exciting festival; guests who have visited before know to pack light and take advantage of the laundry rooms in our beautiful cabins, leaving plenty of room in their suitcases for the treasures found at the Rose Glen Festival!
Winter Wonderland and Events in Gatlinburg
The charming beauty of our luxurious cabins shines even brighter against the snowy landscape that is Gatlinburg in the winter. Reserve your stay with us today and enjoy these events in Gatlinburg!
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!
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!
