Taste Gatlinburg’s Best Fall Fare in September
If you’ve ever been to Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountains during the fall, you know how magical it is. The weather is crisp and clean, the water cool and clear and the colors of The Smokies are unbelievable. The blue mist that settles over the mountains is even more mysterious and beautiful when its foliage is filled with nature’s bright yellows, oranges, reds and greens.
It is truly one of the best times of the year to visit Gatlinburg and one of those reasons is the food. Any foodie will gobble up the grub that’s offered during the Annual Taste of Autumn. The event, which has been going on for over 20 years, is a tradition and one that serves the United Way of Sevier County. Part of the proceeds go to serve residents of Sevier County.

This year’s event features the Eagles’ tribute band, On the Border. There’s also entertainment from Dolly Parton’s Stampede and comedians to make the food fair funny! In 2018, there were over 20 vendors and this year, many will return, such as:

- Landshark Bar & Grill — a downtown Gatlinburg landmark with some the best burgers in Tennessee.
- Proof of the Pudding, the center’s exclusive caterer since 1979.
- Texas Roadhouse – a steakhouse located in the heart of Gatlinburg.
- Wine-a-Little & Tapas Bar (the Rampant Lion) – a local and vistor’s favorite put that serves up plant based fare, gourmet food, wines and Irish whiskey.
Don’t worry, you’ll also have dessert from Ben & Jerry’s. Pizza, fried southern food, sandwiches and subs will show up in the extensive menu. The only “problem” is choosing how much you can eat!
