With the holiday season approaching, Pigeon Forge has been busy with preparations for the many exciting Christmas shows and activities the area is known for. November 9th, the area will start off the holiday festivities with the area’s 21st Annual Winterfest Kickoff. Games, music, food, and craft vendors will be spread throughout the area helping everyone to have fun and enjoy the beginning of the season. The most exciting part of Winterfest happens in the evening after it gets dark. A switch is flipped to light over 5 million twinkling Christmas lights. The light displays are all over town, so you can spend several evenings exploring them while you’re in the area.
While you’re in Pigeon Forge for Winterfest, make sure to visit the Dixie Stampede to see their Christmas show. The Dixie Stampede Christmas show is a spectacular event that features a live nativity scene, evergreens, poinsettias, beautiful holiday costumes, and time-honored classic Christmas music. The show itself is as spirited as ever with a competition between the North Pole and the South Pole helping to make the holiday show an exciting one. Even Santa Clause gets in on the action in this Christmas extravaganza!
Don’t forget the Black Bear Jamboree Dinner and Show and their special presentation Black Bear Christmas Spectacular. This holiday show takes you on an enchanting journey with the black bears to find out the true meaning of Christmas. Their adventure will take you from Santa’s Workshop all the way to New York City and finally to a live Nativity scene. It’s a delightful tale that captures the hearts of people of all ages year after year.
