Each year, the Smoky Mountain Song Writers Festival brings songwriters of top hit songs to the forefront in Gatlinburg.  The 5th Annual Songwriters Festival 2016 where you’ll get to see, hear and meet the folks who write songs for some of the biggest artists in the music industry.

The event includes plenty of free concerts that take place all over the city with venues indoors and out, in local restaurants and hotel meeting halls.  There are also limited seating, ticketed events with prices ranging from $12-$25 for adults.  Tickets can be purchased online and for an additional $5, at the door.

Although the songwriters festival provides some fantastic entertainment for the public, it also offers educational workshops and networking opportunities for seasoned writers and industry newcomers looking to publish their own big hit.  Workshops take place during all 4 days of the festival by experienced and published writers.

Book your private cabin with Autumn Ridge so that you don’t miss the opportunity to perhaps hear the story behind your favorite songs!
