Fodor's Review

Visitors are invited to bring lawn chairs and a picnic along to enjoy Old Timers' Day at Cades Cove. Usually held the third weekend in late September at the Cable Mill area of Cades Cove, Old Timers' Day allows former residents of Cades Cove, and their descendants, along with the general public, to reminisce about the old days in the valley. The Cades Cove event is now part of a two-day Fall Heritage Festival at the Great Smoky Mountains Heritage Center in Townsend, just outside the park. At Townsend you can enjoy bluegrass music, clogging and square dancing, arts and crafts demonstrations, and mountain food. Both events are free.
