Why November is Such a Special Time to Visit Pigeon Forge

With cooler temperatures and holidays on the horizon, November in Pigeon Forge is lively and welcoming. Try these six memorable ways to spend your vacation here.


1. Take In a Show


November kicks off holiday shows in Pigeon Forge, where there’s a stage spectacular for every taste. A few:

  1. Watch dozens of horses with expert riders at Dolly Parton’s Stampede.
  2. See pirates battle aboard life-sized ships in an indoor lagoon at Pirates Voyage.
  3. Visit Country Tonite for heartwarming Christmas music. 


2. Celebrate a Relaxed Thanksgiving


For a stress-free Thanksgiving, don’t cook! Plenty of restaurants are open and eat out or order a delicious meal to share at your home away from home. Watch football in the living room, or opt for a cabin with a movie theater and see the big game on the big screen!


3. Play in the Great Outdoors


November in Pigeon Forge is ideal for active fun, with daytime highs hitting 57 to 66 degrees. Race along ziplines, go on hikes, or try a mountain coaster. Go horseback riding or take a carriage ride. The national park’s stables are open for all of November.


4. Dazzling Tour Lights


At Winterfest, tour light displays night after sparkling night. Enjoy warming food, drinks, and events like parades, concerts, and fun runs. Winterfest starts in mid-November and runs into February.


5. Let Laughter Keep You Warm


Don your silliest holiday sweater for the Redneck Comedy Bus Christmas Lights Ride. Join rowdy redneck comedians for this wild outing starting in Pigeon Forge. Sing along with crazy carols, and watch for tipsy reindeer!


Bring the whole family to The Comedy Barn’s holiday show for laughs, music, and Christmas acts you can’t see anywhere else. From grandma to the youngest kids, everyone’s welcome. 


6. Enjoy a Cozy Cabin


Treat yourself to late autumn days on your cabin’s deck, soaking up the Smokies’ fall glory. Hop into the outdoor hot tub and watch your breath steam while you stay warm. Flop onto the sofa and read. You’re on vacation and can do everything–or nothing. 


7. Start Christmas Early at Dollywood


Dolly’s bursting with so much holiday cheer that she starts celebrating Christmas on November 5! At Dollywood’s Smoky Mountain Christmas, revel in carols, classic holiday songs, seasonal treats, rides, and millions of twinkling lights.
