It’s that time of year….the outdoor activities and festivals are coming right up! If you are planning a trip to the Great Smoky Mountains, Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Sevierville or anywhere nearby, you won’t want to miss the fun and excitement of the Gatlinburg Beans & Cornbread Festival. The event is presented by Bush Brothers & Company and is a celebration of Appalachian culinary history. Mark your calendar for Thursday, May 12, 2016 from 5-8 p.m., the location of the event is between traffic lights 6 and 8 on the Parkway. The festival is free to attend with the option of purchasing a spoon for $10 to sample recipes from all booths (while supplies last). Children under 7 can sample for free. Enjoy strolling the Parkway and taking in the beauty and southern hospitality that East Tennessee is known for.

Many visitors plan their vacations around this festival, and members of the community make it a tradition to attend each year. In addition to the tasting of beans and cornbread, and the cook-off, there will be live entertainment. Country music singer/songwriter Tara Thompson will be performing. She is the cousin of Loretta Lynn, the Queen of Country Music, and has recently been the opening act for several of Loretta Lynn’s concerts.
