July 4, 2023 is two days away. Have you made plans yet? In Gatlinburg, there are plenty of things to do to celebrate Independence Day.
Gatlinburg's Annual Fourth of July Midnight Parade
The 48th Annual Gatlinburg Fourth of July Midnight Parade is going to be a blast. National Geographic Traveler Magazine has named this award winning event one of the top 10 parades in the United States, and it keeps getting better year after year. This Independence Day, the parade is going to be grand marshaled by the Harlem Globetrotters, so it will be more fun than ever!
River Raft Regatta
Gatlinburg's popular River Raft Regatta takes place on the Little Pigeon River in Downtown Gatlinburg. Competitors send floatables and rubber ducks down the river in a light-hearted, exciting race that the whole family can enjoy. Proceeds go to the Gatlinburg Chamber Foundation. Winners receive trophies!
Patriot Fest 2023
Pigeon Forge's annual Patriot Festival will feature music, food, games, and fireworks. Bring blankets and/or lawn chairs and get ready for great live music by grammy-nominated country musician Sara Evans.
No matter what event you attend, we feel confident that you'll have the best Independence Day ever in Gatlinburg!
