One of the most exciting things to do in the Great Smoky Mountain national park is to take advantage of the events and ranger guided programs. There are programs for park visitors of all ages and special programs for kids who want to become Junior Rangers. Parents are welcome to join is as well!

Most programs and events that take place in the Great Smoky Mountains national park take place from April through November. All programs are free unless listed next to event. Donation are always welcome and you can find donation boxes at all of the visitor centers.

All programs are subject to cancellation without notice most often due to bad weather for outdoor programs or road conditions in the GSMNP due to snow and ice in the early spring or fall.
