For some people the New Year is about dressing up and going out until after midnight, for others it’s just staying at home to watch the ball drop in New York City. If you’ve come on vacation during this big holiday then you’re probably looking for something to do. Well the Valley Forge Inn has plenty of ideas for things to do on New Year’s Eve in Pigeon Forge.

New Year’s Eve at The Island

During past years Pigeon Forge has hosted their big New Year’s Eve celebration at Patriot Park, but after a wildly successful year last year, they moved the celebration to The Island in Pigeon Forge. The Island will have live music and a large firework display. You’ll have tons of things to do while waiting for the new year! The Island offers restaurants, rides, and shopping, many of which will have extended hours for the evening. The celebration will kick off at 8 p.m. and include a free concert from country artist Jackie Lee! This will be the biggest event to attend on New Year’s Eve in Pigeon Forge.
