Sevierville Fall Activities & Calendar
Sevierville’s best autumn events highlight the traditions of past generations and the talents of current residents. As the weather gets colder, the town transitions from fall festivals to winter lighting. If Sevierville’s special events reveal anything about the community, it’s that residents hold a close bond — and that they’re eager to celebrate the harvest season with locals and visitors alike.
Jeepers Creepers! Vehicular Frights at Jeeptober Fest in the Smokies
1431 Parkway, Sevierville
Who knew Jeeps could be so spooky? You’ll see a whole new side to your favorite vehicle at this unique Halloween event. Gather behind Quaker Steak & Lube for a Jeep show, a Jeep-o-lantern contest, and a raffle. Several local and national vendors put on displays for the event, so take your time to browse.
Don’t forget to dress up; the festival features costume contests for both kids and adults. Stop by the beer garden for a drink before you dance the night away to tunes from Sunburned Willy. Not only is this event fun, it supports a great cause; the majority of the proceeds are dedicated to local charities.
Wears Valley Fall Fest: DIY Fun And Delicious Food
3177 Wears Valley Road, Sevierville
Presented by Keep Sevier Beautiful, the Wears Valley Fall Fest provides yet another opportunity to support the arts and crafts community of the Great Smoky Mountains. Check out woodworking, basket making, and photography exhibits, where you’ll have plenty of opportunities to support the local artistic community with a special purchase.
Kids are encouraged to create their own works of art at a craft station equipped with natural and re-purposed items. The festival is more than a craft show, however; it also features musical entertainment, delicious treats, and a variety of activities for young attendees. Take a tractor ride with the whole family or participate in an exciting obstacle course.
Food is one of the main attractions at the Wears Valley Fall Fest, so be sure to arrive with a big appetite. From steak on a stick to funnel cakes, you’ll enjoy a variety of delicacies that you assumed were limited to summertime county fairs. Save some room for a gourmet candy apple — the ultimate autumn treat.
Discover Sevierville’s Haunted Past at History & Haunts and the Jack-O’-Lantern Jubilee
Bruce Street Gazebo, Sevierville
This all-new event brings an eerie aura to Sevierville’s historic downtown district. Learn about the town’s spooky history during a special ghost tour, led by the knowledgeable historian Carroll McMahan. You’ll hear about the various misfortunes past residents have suffered, as well as reports of ghosts walking the very streets current Sevierville residents traverse every day. Tours depart from the gazebo on Bruce Street promptly at 6 and 7:30 pm.
If you can’t stomach a ghost tour, don’t worry — there is still plenty to love about this special Halloween event. Join your friends and family members for a frightfully good time at the Jack-O’-Lantern Jubilee. Participate in a pumpkin carving contest or boogie the frights away at the family-friendly dance party.
Rock Around the Block at the Sheriff’s Halloween Spooktacular Block Party
Main Jail Facility, Sevierville
Hang out with local police, firefighters, and EMS professionals at the Sheriff’s Halloween Spooktacular Block Party. Held at the main jail facility in Sevierville, this annual celebration provides a safe alternative (or complement to) typical trick-or-treating adventures. Sevier County families can attend completely free of charge.
Sevierville’s Spooktacular typically draws over 1,000 trick-or-treaters, but it will be even bigger and better this year; following the success of past events, Sherriff Ronald ‘Hoss’ Seals has invited all local agencies interested in serving local youth.
Enjoy the Music and Lights of Shadrack’s Christmas Wonderland
Tennessee Smokies Baseball Stadium, Kodak
November 2nd-January 6
Although technically located in Kodak, Shadrack’s Christmas Wonderland refers to its Smoky Mountains edition as the ‘Sevierville’ location. Also, this Shadrack’s includes an adorable Santa’s Workshop operated by the City of Sevierville.
This year, Shadrack’s opening night is November 2nd, but visits with Santa begin November 17th. Santa’s Workshop also includes pony rides, a petting zoo, and plenty of tasty treats from local vendors. Sip on a cup of hot chocolate as you marvel at the whimsy of the holiday season.
Santa’s Workshop is a blast for visitors of all ages, but the real attraction at Shadrack’s Christmas Wonderland is the light show. The computerized LED show is perfectly choreographed to fit your favorite holiday songs. From dusk to 10 pm, you and your loved ones are welcome to take in the magic of the display from the comfort of your very own car. Lines can be long on weekend evenings, so stop by during the week if you’re free.
