Upcoming Spring Events

A lot of events starting up in the next few weeks within driving distance from Deer Ridge. Let’s look.

Smokies 4
Free Junior Ranger Day

Dolly Homecoming Parade
One of the biggest reasons to come to the Smokies in early May is the Dolly Homecoming Parade on May 1st in downtown Pigeon Forge. From Stoplights #3 to #6, dozens and dozens of awesome floats will parade down the main parkway of the city, ending with Dolly herself as the Grand Marshal of the event. http://www.mypigeonforge.com/events/dolly-parade/

Starting May 3rd, all of Ripley’s attractions in downtown Gatlinburg will be only $5 a person as part of their “Sevier County Days” local appreciation. This includes Ripley’s Aquarium, Haunted Adventures, Guinness World of Records and the rest. www.ripleysgatlinburg.com.

Dollywood Barbeque & Bluegrass
The second festival for the Spring season at Dollywood is returning on May 23rd and is going on until June 7th for 2015.

Festival of the Nations 2015

If this doesn’t inspire a plan to visit the Smokies soon, nothing will.

Dollywood has re-opened over the weekend for the 2015 season with perennial favorite “Festival Of The Nations”. This year the headlining act is “Rhythm of the Dance”, at the main theater on park, while many newer performers like “Timber!” and the “Alash Ensemble” play at venues throughout alongside returning favorites like Zebra Stelzentheater and Atahualpa coming back again.

This year also marks the 30th anniversary of Dollywood here in the Smokies and many new changes are expected this year, from the opening of their new multi-million dollar “DreamMore” resort and new parking to new guest amenities, new stages and much more you can see at http://www.dollywood.com/LPg/NewIn2015.aspx

So how can you top enjoying a weekend at Dollywood during Festival of the Nations? By making it a vacation package with Deer Ridge.

Happy Veteran’s Day 2014

Veteran’s Day is an important day to us here at Deer Ridge. Many of our staff have family or other significant connections who have served and sacrificed for our country by joining the armed forces, and it means as much for us to be able to celebrate the freedom they won us as it does you.

Deer Ridge therefore strives to make sure our military men and women are appreciated back home by offering the BEST military discount in East Tennessee – 27% off all our condos and cabins. No “ifs”, “ands” or “buts”, we just need to see your military ID to confirm and you and your guests are set to go!
