Make plans now to attend “StringTime in the Smokies.” StringTime is August 4, 2012 and takes place in the area surrounding Pigeon Forge’s Old Mill and Patriot Park. The 1-day event features some of the area’s finest Appalachian musicians, pickers, crafters, and artisans who demonstrate their skills and share their knowledge with Pigeon Forge visitors.

Mountain Music fills the air from performers on stage to breakout jam sessions where everyone gets into the act. A variety of old-fashioned games can be enjoyed by all ages, and antique farm equipment brings another taste of nostalgia to the event.
Don’t forget the stick-to-your-ribs great food that can be enjoyed at outdoor picnic tables making Stringtime in the Smokies is a celebration of American music. It is the perfect way to spend a day in Pigeon Forge at the foot of the Great Smoky Mountains. Admission is free, and food and beverage vendors will be on site.
You are encouraged to bring a lawn chair. Also, bring your own instrument and make some music!
Community Radio Station WDVX will be live in front of Pottery House Cafe & Grill. WDVX is a not-for-profit community radio station that is supported by donations from listeners.
