It happens every year. The magic of the Christmas season somehow gets lost in the whirlwind of activity. Shopping, baking, and other obligations mean less time spent just enjoying the company of family and friends. This year, take off for Pigeon Forge, TN, where the Smoky Mountain Opry puts on a Christmas show to enchant every member of your family from the youngest to the oldest. You'll relive those magical holiday celebrations you enjoyed as a kid, and make some new memories with your own children.

Christmas Comes to Life on Stage

With a talented cast of singers, dancers, and comedians, Christmas at the Smoky Mountain Opry offers non-stop entertainment throughout the months of November and December each year. In addition to the cast, the lavish costumes, stunning set decoration, and amazing special effects all add up to make this one show you've got to experience to fully appreciate.

As life-size toys dance merrily across the stage, delighting children of all ages with their antics in a nod to everyone's favorite holiday stage show, you'll find your toes tapping along with the music. Sugar plum fairies soar above the crowd, while singers enchant the audience with renditions of popular Christmas carols and show tunes. Be careful, though. Holiday magic is contagious, and you might just start singing along.

It simply wouldn't be a Christmas show without Santa and his elves. They join in the fun and dance and sing as well, spreading Christmas joy throughout the audience. Santa's trademark laughter fills the air, and those magical reindeer even make an appearance, charming young and old alike. You can almost picture them taking to the sky on Christmas Eve, pulling a sleigh piled high with toys for every boy and girl. 

Remembering the true meaning of the holiday, the Smoky Mountain Opry brings the story of the first Christmas to life in stunning detail with the area's largest living nativity. Angels soar above the manger where baby Jesus lies, as the Wise Men gather to celebrate his birth. Backed by the breathtaking music of a live orchestra, this version of the Christmas story is one you won't soon forget.

Your Home for Holiday Celebrations

There's more to Pigeon Forge than the Smoky Mountain Opry, though. World-class dining, stunning light shows, parades, and more fill each holiday season. Of course, shopping is plentiful as well. The area's famous arts and crafts community means unique, handcrafted gifts are available nearly everywhere you turn, while bargain hunters will love the outlet malls.

Nothing puts you in the holiday spirit quite like Christmas at the Smoky Mountain Opry. From toddlers to grandmas, every member of your family will find something to love about this amazing show. This year, start a new family tradition, and take in a show or two in beautiful Pigeon Forge, TN.
