Smoky Mountains Quiltfest

Pigeon Forge, Tennessee is home to the famous Smoky Mountain Quiltfest where over 20,000 tourists from all corners of the United States converge for four days of celebrating quilts and those who create them. The next event is set for March 14-17, 2012.

Quilting may seem like a lost art, but there are many quilting enthusiasts keeping this tradition alive and sharing their knowledge with the younger generation. Classes are offered to all ages and skill levels during Quiltfest. In addition, there are competitions for everyone from professional quilters to youth just learning about making quilts.

Entering the world-renowned quilt show at Quiltfest is completely free. Each quilter is limited to four entries. Go to for complete entry guidelines.

Nestled in the Smoky Mountains, Pigeon Forge features a wide range of activities for the entire family, plus even more fun during Quiltfest. All ages will enjoy white water rafting, visits to the aquarium, and hiking through the Smoky Mountains. Take in the scenery on a train ride or enjoy a day learning all about the Titanic. Of course, no trip to Tennessee is complete without taking in a live country music show.

A Pigeon Forge hotel awaits you with all the comforts of home during your stay at Quiltfest in the beautiful Smoky Mountains. Come join the fun at Smoky Mountain Quiltfest this spring!
