Sevierville and her sister cities of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg are all decked out in lights during the annual Smoky Mountain Winterfest Celebration.

Viewing Smoky Mountain Winterfest lights with friends and family is a great way to get in the holiday spirit – and with more than 15 million lights in a 25-mile stretch, there’s certainly plenty of looking to do!

Winterfest lights are a huge draw, but once visitors arrive in Sevierville, they also find incredible shopping, attractions, and area holiday shows.

Special Winterfest attractions, like Shadrack’s Christmas Wonderland at Smokies Stadium (November 12, 2021 – January 2, 2022), add to the excitement. This 1.5-mile drive through LED light and music experience is considered one of the most immersive drive-through Christmas experiences on Earth.
