Free Concert From Morgan Wallen

Outside of the Morgan Wallen concert, there will also be a stage set up that will showcase many talented local musicians. The best part is all of these shows are completely free to attend.
Authentic Smoky Mountain Crafts Demonstrations
It wouldn’t be a Smoky Mountain event without a chance for guests to see first hand how talented artists are able to construct their stunning pieces. From handmade jewelry to basket making to woodworking, there will be live Smoky Mountain craft demonstrations going on throughout the 2014 Wears Valley Fall Festival.
Be sure to bring an extra bag or two to carry a couple of these crafts home with you. They will make for excellent Christmas gifts or souvenirs from your latest trip to the Smoky Mountains!
Potato Sack Race
If you were anything like up growing up, then one of your favorite activities was racing around your back yard with your friends in a potato sack. At the 2014 Wears Valley Fall Festival, guests can bring these fond memories back to life.
In addition to the potato sack race, there will also be an old-fashioned style baseball game.
Parents planning on bringing their children will also enjoy being able to let them run wild in the dedicated kids’ play area at this exciting Smoky Mountain fall event. Inside the play area kids will find giant inflatables, interactive games, a crafting station, and much more.
Delicious Fall Flavors
Fall is one of the few times of year where it is completely acceptable to put caramel apples and pumpkin spices in everything you cook. From coffee to cupcakes to marshmallows, fall flavors have definitely taken over menus and grocery stores everywhere. However, it is only at the 2014 Wears Valley Fall Festival where visitors can find all these great tastes in one place.
Food vendors from all across the Smoky Mountains will be cooking up the very best of funnel cakes, kettle corn and caramel apples that guests can find.
Along with the endless lines of delicious fall foods, the 2014 Wears Valley Fall Festival will also feature authentic southern barbecue, pulled pork, and hamburgers. For those looking to toss in a little extra flair in their meal, there will also be a Greek food booth.
