Changing leaves, cooler weather, seasonal traditions and pumpkin EVERYTHING. If you're anything like us, you live for fall, and September 22nd officially marks the first day of one of our favorite seasons. Whether it’s to visit the Great Smoky Mountains National Park or to take a trip to Pigeon Forge, fall is the perfect time to embrace all our area has to offer. At The Island in Pigeon Forge, we change things up in autumn so that you are sure to find something new to enjoy for the season.

Here are five reasons you will love fall at The Island:

1. The View: The Smoky Mountains hail as the most visited National Park in the United States for a number of reasons. Fortunately, from the top of The Great Smoky Mountain Wheel, you can get an amazing view of these mountains. With the changing of the leaves in full swing, your view from 200 feet in the air is that much more breathtaking.

2. Live Bluegrass: Almost every day during the fall, guests can enjoy live bluegrass music at the Ole Smoky Moonshine stage. Relax in a rocking chair in front of the stage and enjoy a variety of traditional bluegrass bands. To view our calendar of live music, visit here: https://islandinpigeonforge.com/events/ 

3. Fall Flavors: From Ole Smoky’s pumpkin pie and apple pie moonshine to new flavors of ice cream at The Island Creamery, fall brings a fresh taste and variety of choices to guests. Don’t forget about Big Rock Candy Kitchen’s caramel apples!

4. The Events: Fall at The Island means we are kickstarting our events season. If you know anything about us, you know that we like to host events that bring families and friends together. During fall, we have two must-attend events that you won’t want to miss: Chalkfest and Halloween.

5. Decorations: One of the best things about visiting The Island in the autumn months is enjoying fall decorations throughout the property. We’ve worked with top-notch designers to build custom themed pieces that make perfect photo ops for your family. Whether it’s around our Island Show Fountain or down Market Street, harvest-themed décor will be abundant this season.
