16th Annual Saddle Up
Pigeon Forge will be filled this weekend with some of the greatest cowboys and cowgirls around for the 16th Annual Saddle UP. This event will close out Winterfest and is definitely an event not to miss! Most of the events are held in the beautiful LeConte Center and the entertainer lineup is second to none, including 14 year old musician Brigid Reedy, T. Scott Wilburn and the Shut Up-N-Playboys, and the Western Flyers.
Friday’s events include multiple concerts, story telling, and a cooking demonstration by Kent and Shannon Rollins. You are sure to feel that Wild West spirit and pride as you hear the story tellers and poets relive it through the past and present. Then, your boots will be stompin’ as the sounds of fiddles, accordians, and banjos fill the air with Western tunes.
Saturday will bring the infamous Chuckwagon Cookoff and finishes with a Cowboy Dance. If you have never experienced a chuckwagon cookoff, then you are missing out! These cooks remove all the stops and serve up a stellar meal– all prepared over the hot coals of a campfire. Your taste buds will be happy!! Close out your day two-stepping and swinging with your favorite dance partner.
Sunday concludes the event with a Chuckwagon Breakfast and Cowboy Church. What a great ending to the weekend!!
