Would you like to celebrate spring in old-fashioned style? If so, the annual Townsend Spring Festival and Old Timer’s Day is planned for May 2 and 3. Featuring bluegrass music, wildflower walks and cast iron cooking, this Smoky Mountain event is the first of many to celebrate the new season and the quieter side of the mountains.
Schedule of Events
As a gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Townsend is only a few minutes from Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. The town holds many events throughout the year, but the Spring Festival is one of the most unique because it honors the Appalachian history of the region through mountain music, old-style cooking and handmade crafts.
Below is a list of events scheduled.
May 2 Sons of Bluegrass Concert at the Heritage Center
May 2-3 Two Wheel’n the Smokies at the Talley Ho Inn
May 3 Quilters Road Show at the Heritage Center
May 3 Little River Railroad Days at Little River Railroad
May 3-4 Nawger Nob Arts and Crafts Festival at Nawger Nob
