Winter Heritage Festival in the Smokies

I don’t want anyone to miss the opportunity to take in the Winter Heritage Festival in the Smokies, hosted in Townsend February 4-7, 2010.

Celebrating the beauty, history, and traditions of Townsend, Cades Cove, and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the festival kicks off with a social evening including music, light hors d’oeuvres, and a program at the Great Smoky Mountains Institute at Tremont (reservations required).  The rest of the weekend is filled with programs, most free, covering all facets of life in the valley and offered at the Townsend Visitors Center and several other area venues, including in the Park.

The Southeast Tourism Society has designated this festival one of the Top 20 Events in the Southeast.  Follow the link at the top for the schedule, reservations, photos, and sponsorship information – and I think their page load graphics are awfully cool, too!
