The annual Smoky Mountain Scottish Festival and Games takes place on the campus of historic Maryville College, in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains, on Saturday and Sunday, May 20-21, 2017. This unique Tennessee event will kick off with the opening gala on the evening of May 19, and the festival will run all weekend, presenting fun for all ages.
Maryville is about 40 miles to the west of Gatlinburg. If you’ve made to Townsend, perhaps on your way to Cades Cove, or for that fun town’s own festival, then you’re already halfway to Maryville. The Scottish Festival offers a compelling reason to go the extra miles.
