Winterfest Parades

Make your Smoky Mountain Christmas special by celebrating the season with Winterfest Parades in Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg & Sevierville!

Everyone loves a parade, especially during Winterfest in the Smoky Mountains. These annual parades bring the Christmas spirit right down the Parkway and are sure to become a new tradition for you and your family. You will see amazing floats, baton twirlers, classic cars, hear bands from around our region playing all your favorite holiday music and most importantly, the big man in red, Santa Claus!


On December 7, 2018, the 43rd Fantasy of Lights Parade will make its way through Downtown Gatlinburg in celebration of the holiday season and the arrival of the man in the red suit himself, Santa Claus. The excitement begins at 7:30 p.m. where the parade will step-off from Baskins Creek Bypass on East Parkway before spanning through Gatlinburg and ending at traffic light #10.
