2013 Wilderness Wildlife Week

Coming to Pigeon Forge, the week of January 7-14, is the 23rd Annual Wilderness Wildlife Week.  This is a very informative event full of exhibits, guided hikes, workshops and even some bus tours. This is a great opportunity for the novice hiker or the most experienced to learn more about every aspect of The Great Smoky Mountains National Park. There will be exhibits from vendors and numerous organizations. Wilderness Wildlife Week is now an award-winning event, having won the prestigious International Festivals and Events Association’s Gold Pinnacle Award for Best Environmental Program and Best Educational Program from among approximately 1,500 award entries, as well as IFEA’s Silver Pinnacle Award for Best Community Outreach Program. So, come and visit. We have numerous Pigeon Forge Cabins and Gatlinburg Cabins close to the convention center where the event is held.
