My family attended the 2018 Winterfest Christian youth retreat in Gatlinburg, TN at the Gatlinburg Convention Center. The center staff were very courteous and friendly, and the facilities were able to manage 16,000 people with ease. I recommend this for anyone holding a convention.

We have attended BSA Winterfest for the last 4 years. There's ample space for the myriad of activities that are hosted each year.

We went through here for the Christmas tree exhibits and craft show. The tree exhibits were most lovely. The craft show was small but had a great selection of items to see and buy

There are trolleys that service the main strip of Gatlinburg, and a very few Uber drivers. I was there 2 weeks ago , and only had 2 Uber drivers available at any given time.

There is parking lots all around the convention center within easy walking distance. I think there is parking at the center itself but I have never used it so I am not sure. I would estimate around $10 to park. As always... More
