Pigeon Forge is known far and wide for its patriotic spirit. This is more evident than ever at the Pigeon Forge Patriot Festival held every year for the past 25 years on Independence Day.
Thousands gather at Patriot Park each year for this free event. The fun typically starts around noon with games and activities for kids.
There’s also live musical entertainment, which starts early in the afternoon and lasts until 9:30 or 10 at night.
After the music it’s time for the evening’s finale - an extravagant fireworks display!
Food vendors with ice cream, shaved ice, hot dogs, burgers and much more will be on hand and a portion of the proceeds go to local area charities. Patriot Festival event parking is free and a trolley shuttle service will run from the Municipal Parking Lot on Teaster Lane right into Patriot Park.
Mark down July 4th on your calendars and come visit Pigeon Forge Patriot Festival in 2014!
Bring blankets and lawn chairs for seating, no umbrellas please.
