Spring! Glorious spring! It envelopes the mountains in beautiful wildflowers and bright-colored bulbs, poking their heads through the last winter snow. A slight chill may still be in the night air, but buds are bursting into bloom, birds are chirping, and the unmistakable signs of new birth are everywhere. Spring and summer in Maggie Valley are more beautiful than in many towns because of its stunning mountain setting. Located right in the center of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, Maggie Valley offers tourists and locals dozens of festivals and special events to welcome the spring and summertime weather. In summer, the foliage is in its full glory, spreading out to reach the sky, flowers are abundant, and the warm weather is a delight to body and mind. Here are a few of our favorite spring and summer festivals, events and attractions – most are held at the Maggie Valley Festival Grounds.
