Fodor's Review

This festival is held on a Saturday in early to mid-December at Sugarlands Visitor Center. It celebrates the culture of the Smokies, with an emphasis on old-time Christmas traditions, plus a visit from Santa. You can hear storytelling and mountain music and watch demonstrations of quilt making, basket weaving, and apple-butter and lye-soap making.
