Spring Rod Run in Pigeon Forge, TN

Automotive enthusiasts all over the country are invited to take part in Pigeon Forge’s annual Spring Rod Run, the first part of three of the largest muscle car events in the nation. Spring Rod Run precedes the Fall Rod Run and Shades of the Past events to kick off an exciting new year that keeps the classics front and center. Join thousands of other classic car lovers in Pigeon Forge from June 11 - 13, 2020, Thursday through Saturday at LeConte Center. The venue presents enough room to showcase an impressive array of cars, vendor stalls, and entertainment. Event times run from 9 am to 6 pm on Thursday and Friday, and 9 am to 5 pm on Saturday.

Awards and Prizes

Spring Rod Run attendees will have the opportunity to compete for top prizes. There will be a $10,000 cash giveaway for one lucky attendee, but several additional contests will ensure many more winners. There’s an opportunity to win any one of the Top 25 Awards, the Ultimate 5 Awards, or the King of the Hill Award. Plenty of people will be walking away as prize winners. Even if you’re not interested in registering for contests, you’re welcome to drive up in your muscle car to wow the spectators. 

Vendors and Accommodations 

To add to the excitement of the vehicles on the floor, there will be a wide array of vendors ready to sell hard-to-find car parts, accessories, or even entire vehicles that they’re looking to add to a collector’s garage. 

As for food and lodging, there are plenty of establishments along the strip, but it’s a good idea to book accommodations or call in restaurant reservations ahead of time. Establishments close to LeConte Center can be busy or booked during this weekend with the thousands of people who flock to Pigeon Forge for this outstanding event installment.

There is typically a $10 admission fee to gain access for the entire weekend, as close to the action as you can get (and take advantage of LeConte Center’s free parking). However, if you’d just like to watch the cars cruise along the strip, you’re welcome to bring lawn chairs and sit along the sidewalk for optimal viewing, free of charge. Because this area is exposed to sunlight, be sure to bring sunscreen, umbrellas, water, anything you need to beat the heat. 

This is a once a year event that’s unrivaled in the turnout it receives, so if you enjoy classic cars, come check out the Spring Rod Run in Pigeon Forge. It’s sure to be a lot of fun.
