WINTERFEST LIGHTS UP THE NIGHT IN SEVIERVILLE
100% LED- Smoky Mountain Winterfest runs Nov. 12, 2013 – Feb. 29, 2014
During the winter months, Sevierville and the Great Smoky Mountains area sparkle with millions of twinkling lights during Smoky Mountain
Winterfest (Nov. 12 – Feb. 28). Celebrating its 24th year, Smoky Mountain Winterfest has become a holiday tradition for many visitors who
return year after year to enjoy the lights, shopping, shows and attractions.
One hundred percent of Sevierville’s Winterfest lights, displays and attractions are LED, which equates to a 90% energy savings for the
city and is gentler on the environment. Want to see them all? Check out our map of Sevierville’s Winterfest Light Displays
Viewing Smoky Mountain Winterfest lights with friends and family is a great way to get in the holiday spirit. For added fun while viewing
the lights, visitors are encouraged to make a quick stop on their way into town at the Sevierville Visitor Center on Hwy 66 (1.5 miles
from I-40 Exit 407). There they can purchase a pair of Winterfest in 3D glasses while supplies last for only $1. The glasses shift each
point of light into a snowflake, adding even more interest to the intricate light displays.
Special Winterfest attractions, like Shadrack’s Christmas Wonderland at Smokies Stadium, add to the excitement. This one-mile drive
through LED light experience features extras for the kids, including a petting zoo, pony and camel rides, photos with Santa
and a Christmas tree lot (after Thanksgiving) and delicious holiday foods. http://www.shadrackchristmas.com/
Winterfest lights are a huge draw, but once visitors arrive in Sevierville they also find incredible shopping (link to shopping page) and
attractions (link to attractions page). Sevierville features nearly 150 name brand outlet stores where shoppers can find everything from fine
China and clothing to tools and furniture. Specialty retail shops featuring items like fine art, antiques and collectibles and outdoor items
are also popular. Visitors can even take a piece of Winterfest home by visiting stores like Country Christmas & Collectibles where Winterfest
style lighting displays are for sale and custom displays are built to order.
The fun continues through February with Winterfest events and year-round attractions.
