MayFest is a traditional German celebration of the arrival of spring with displays of history, culture and the traditional Maypole dance.
Ober Gatlinburg’s Spring festival MayFest has been cancelled for this year. Hope you can join us for Mayfest in 2021.
Details below are for future Mayfest celebrations.
Visitors to Ober Gatlinburg will enjoy the Biergarten and demonstrations by artists from the Great Smoky Arts and Crafts Community. Children’s free activities include bounce houses, games, face painting and crafts.
An Outdoor Bier Garten is open daily for beer sampling for festival-goers who are 21 and over. Also, for your entertainment, The Smoky Mountain Oompah Band. The band dresses in authentic lederhosen while performing traditional Bavarian folk dances, oompah music, sing-a-longs, yodels, and more!
Inside the mall, you’ll also want to check out our retail shops … most especially our unique and specific “Beer Necessities” kiosk, which provides an eclectic selection of gifts and accessories for the true beer (or “bier”) aficionado.
