A United Church of God Feast of Tabernacles site
For the second time the Rocky Top Sports World will host the Feast of Tabernacles in Gatlinburg. The Gatlinburg and surrounding area is one of the most popular vacation and honeymoon locations in the United States. It is also the gateway to the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains National Park. You can enjoy a family friendly Feast with fellow brethren in a peaceful, safe environment amid beautiful autumn colors. Here is information to help you make your plans.
Feast Services and Activities: A service will be conducted each day, plus one or two special seminars and Bible studies. We expect to have a family dance event, and a seniors’ luncheon. Also, we would like to organize a few sporting activities if there is sufficient interest (the facility is great for sports). Other activities and events will be announced later on the UCG members website at feast.ucg.org.
Housing: Many options are available within five to 25 minutes’ drive including economy motels to multi-room condos and rental homes. Members are free to find their own housing, but those listed here in the brochure are providing discounts to UCG members.
Dining: You’ll have over a hundred restaurants to choose from in the greater area. You can choose from a wide variety of casual dining options as well as something for a special night out.
Entertainment: The Gatlinburg area offers a unique range of entertainment, arts, shopping and attractions. You can choose live music or theater, dinner shows or dancing. Even walking along the lively main street in Gatlinburg during the afternoon is full of fun and activity. Watch artists and artisans at their easels and pottery wheels throughout the vibrant crafts community in the galleries downtown or on the eight-mile-long crafts loop that begins just outside of town. Numerous activities are also available for the whole family in the nearby Pigeon Forge and Sevierville areas. These include family shows, miniature golf courses, go-kart tracks, shopping and much more.
The Great Outdoors: The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a large part of why the area has become such a popular holiday destination. It offers 800 square miles of spectacular flora, fauna and outdoor activities. Plus, over 900 miles of hiking trails so you can explore forests and waterfalls while enjoying stunning mountain vistas. Daily Temperature: The average daily high temperature is 69 degrees and a low of 56 degrees during October.
Parking and Trolley Service: Parking fees range from $5-18 per day. Trolley service is available in Gatlinburg from 8:30 a.m. to midnight during October. The fare is 50 cents each time you board the trolley (exact change is required). A trolley pass can be purchased for $2 per day for unlimited access to downtown routes. The trolley pass can be purchased at Gatlinburg City Hall or Welcome Centers located on the trolley routes. Trolleys can take you directly to the convention center. Special routes are available for an additional fee to the Arts and Crafts Community, to a portion of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the Dollywood family amusement park.
