Embrace the Holiday Spirit in Gatlinburg

Gatlinburg Carolers

Deck the halls in Gatlinburg this season with dazzling trees, joyous music and more while visiting White Oak Lodge and Resort this holiday season.

If you are in town from November 26-30, the Mills Auditorium will be home to the Festival of Trees. The event will include more than 75 trees spruced with holiday spirit, a Santa Store, a gingerbread house contest and a silent auction. Entrance is free, but guests are encouraged to donate to the Smoky Mountain Area Rescue Ministries.

Then, every Friday and Saturday until December 21, the Winter Magic Tunes and Tales program takes over downtown Gatlinburg. Performers will dress in festive costumes while singing and telling stories of the holiday season.

The characters this year include a dulcimer guitar duo, an acapella caroling quartet, some of Santa’s elves and Frosty the Snowman. There will be two openers, one at 5:00 p.m. in The Village and another at 5:30 in Baskins Square. Closing performances will begin at 8:45 p.m. each night at the Reagan Terrace Mall.

With all the lights and sounds, Gatlinburg is as jolly as it gets during the holidays. White Oak Lodge and Resort is a great place to embrace the holiday cheer; check out our cabins today!
