Don’t miss the 3rd Annual Wears Valley Fall Fest October 14 – 16, 2016! This annual fundraiser for Keep Sevier Beautiful is a great way to celebrate Autumn in the Smokies! The festival is open from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday; and 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday.
Friday night on the Main Stage, it’s the Miss Fall Fest Pageant where local young ladies compete for the title and crown. On the Main Stage throughout the festival, you’ll hear some fine Country, Bluegrass, and Southern Gospel Music along with Traditional Native American Interactive Dance. Side stages will provide intimate venues for the weaving of some authentic Smoky Mountain Tales where you’ll laugh and learn about life in the mountains.
Wears Valley Fall Fest features an Antique Tractor Show and tractor rides for the kids. What make this particular fall festival so unique are the opportunities for fun while learning stewardship for our natural resources. The Fall Fest Kid’s Tent provides a free craft area where they can make all kinds of cool stuff out of re-purposed and natural items. Volunteers from Keep Sevier Beautiful and Lane Construction will be on hand to help make t-shirt bags, Fall and Christmas decorations, bird houses, and other fun items to take home.
There will be a wide variety of exhibitors and vendors at the festival showing off their artwork and jewelry as well as live demonstrations of metal crafts, basket making, and woodworking. And don’t worry about going hungry, there’ll be plenty of kettle corn, candy apples, and fried Twinkies for dessert first, then you can enjoy some grilled chicken or steak on a stick.
