Tunes & Tales is a summer-long street performance festival featuring costumed musical performers, storytellers and artisans portraying characters from time periods as far back as the 1800s.
Gatlinburg will present the 13th season of Smoky Mountain Tunes & Tales daily in downtown Gatlinburg through August 11.
This popular event truly highlights one of Gatlinburg’s greatest assets in the walkability of the city and provides guests with an interactive, educational and entertaining experience the whole family can enjoy.
“Gatlinburg is a walking town. Tunes & Tales enhances our visitors’ experience as they stroll the Parkway in the evenings,” said Marci Claude, PR Manager. “The performers bring to life traditional Smoky Mountain heritage and culture in a fun and interactive way.”
The collection of personalities and performers arrive nightly at 6 p.m. in the center of town. Visitors witness a magical transformation of sidewalk to stage as the characters disperse along the downtown Parkway for an evening of entertainment and storytelling.
