What's New in Sevierville


The 25th Annual Smoky Mountain Winterfest Celebration goes until Feb. 28, 2015.

During the winter months, Sevierville and the Great Smoky Mountains area sparkle with millions of twinkling lights during Smoky Mountain Winterfest (Nov. 10 – Feb. 28). Smoky Mountain Winterfest has become a holiday tradition for many visitors who return year after year to enjoy the lights, shopping, shows and attractions.

Viewing Smoky Mountain Winterfest lights with friends and family is a great way to get in the holiday spirit. For added fun while viewing the lights, visitors are encouraged to make a quick stop on their way into town at the Sevierville Visitor Center on Hwy 66 (1.5 miles from I-40 Exit 407). There they can purchase a pair of Winterfest in 3D glasses while supplies last for only $1. The glasses shift each point of light into a snowflake, adding even more interest to the intricate light displays.

Special Winterfest attractions, like Shadrack’s Christmas Wonderland at Smokies Stadium, add to the excitement. This 1.5 mile drive through LED light experience (one of the largest in the world) features extras for the kids, including photos with Santa and delicious holiday foods.

Winterfest lights are a huge draw, but once visitors arrive in Sevierville they also find incredible shopping, shows and attractions. Sevierville features nearly 150 name brand outlet stores where shoppers can find everything from fine China and clothing to tools and furniture. Specialty retail shops featuring items like fine art, antiques and collectibles and outdoor items are also popular. Visitors can even take a piece of Winterfest home by visiting stores like Country Christmas & Collectibles where Winterfest style lighting displays are for sale and custom displays are built to order. The fun continues through February with Winterfest events and year-round attractions.
