    Smoky Mountain Scottish Festival & Games

    Welcome to the Smoky Mountain Scottish Festival and Games at Maryville College, East Tennessee's premier celebration of Scottish culture and history. Originally founded in 1981 as the Gatlinburg Scottish Festival and Games, we are one of the oldest Scottish Festivals in the country. With success comes change, and the continued growth of our event ultimately made a new venue necessary. In 2010, we established a new home in the City of Maryville on the picturesque grounds of historic Maryville College, home of "The Scots". But you don't have to be Scottish in order to enjoy this unique Festival! Our location in the heart of The Great Smoky Mountains is the perfect backdrop for you and your family to get a wee glimpse of Scotland and to discover and appreciate the rich traditions and history of the Scottish and Scots-Irish settlers of our area – extraordinary people whose courage, determination and pioneering spirit helped forge what was to become an independent United States of America.

    Tour De Blount

    The Tour de Blount is a one day cycling event with a variety of rides through beautiful Blount County, Tennessee.  The ride is organized and promoted by the Foothill Striders, a non-profit club dedicated to promoting the benefits of cycling, hiking, and running.  The event offers four different routes traversing the scenic rolling hills, farmlands and rural countryside next to the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains with distances from 25 to 72 miles.

    The proceeds for this event go to support scholarships for area high school seniors and various other community projects like additions and improvements to the greenway system, as well as a Friends of the Smokies endowment for the Trails Forever Program which supports trail maintenance in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park.

    Mark your calendars for the 2017 Tour de Blount, 7:30 am on May 20th! We are moving to the Townsend Visitor Center for the start/finish of the race.
