Have a Sweet Mother’s Day in Gatlinburg

May 06, 2019

First, make Mom’s day memorable with a visit to the Mother's Day Market on May 10-11 at the Gatlinburg Convention Center. The first 100 moms will snag a swag bag, and there will be door prizes and ready-made gift baskets. Over 80 small businesses will be on hand for demonstrations, fun, and some terrific shopping! Next, stroll along Gatlinburg’s downtown area for store-made taffy and hand-dipped candied apples, a myriad of specialty shops, and dozens of flavors of the city’s favorite potent potable – locally made moonshine. Lastly, stick around for Memorial Day on May 27, when Ripley’s Mermaids return to the Aquarium. Catch a live show, attend a meet and greet, or have a photo taken with one of these gorgeous creatures, who will remain for the spring and summer season through Labor Day Weekend.
