Alongside the market, the venue will host an interactive fan area where you can kick back, relax, and have a great time. At the center of the fan area, you will find a huge beer garden featuring all the best local and domestic brews plus plenty of excellent wine selections.
In between sets, you can chill there while getting in a drink or two to fuel up for more fun in the coming hours. Or you can visit the coffee shops, burger places, and other eateries inside the LeConte Center or use your in and out privileges to zip on over to Pigeon Forge for a bite to eat.
If you’re feeling a bit energized, you can play games with your fellow festivalgoers or even try to snag an autograph as artists come through to see their loyal fans.
