Visit the Island in Pigeon Forge

Changing leaves, cooler weather, seasonal traditions, and pumpkin EVERYTHING. If you’re anything like us, you live for fall, and September 22nd marks the first day of one of our favorite seasons. Whether it’s to visit the Great Smoky Mountains National Park or to take a trip to Pigeon Forge. Fall is the perfect time to embrace all this beautiful area has to offer. At The Island in Pigeon Forge, they change things up in the fall so that you are sure to find something new to enjoy for the season.

Here are five reasons you will love fall at The Island:

The View

The Smoky Mountains hail as the most visited National Park in the United States for many reasons. From the top of The Great Smoky Mountain Wheel, you can get an amazing view of these mountains. With the changing of the leaves in full swing, your view from 200 feet in the air is that much more breathtaking.

Live Bluegrass

Almost every day during the fall, guests can enjoy live bluegrass music at the Ole Smoky Moonshine stage. Relax in a rocking chair in front of the stage and enjoy a variety of traditional bluegrass bands. To view our calendar of live music, visit here: 

Fall Flavors

From Ole Smoky’s pumpkin pie and apple pie moonshine to new flavors of ice cream at The Island Creamery. Fall brings a fresh taste and variety of choices to guests. Don’t forget about Big Rock Candy Kitchen’s caramel apples!


Fall at The Island means kickstarting the events season. If you know anything about The Island, you know that they like to host events that bring families and friends together. During the fall, they have two must-attend events that you won’t want to miss: Chalkfest and Halloween.
