From Foothills Fall Festival Website:Nestled at the Foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, Maryville, Tennessee hosts three days of amazing world class concerts, juried arts and crafts, and activities, shows, and much more for the whole family.
The Foothills Fall Festival is located throughout downtown Maryville over 20 acres.
The City of Maryville is located in Blount County, Tennessee. More than ten years ago, the City Council and City Administration began working on a community event which would provide world class entertainment to the community and the region. The festival became a reality in 2000 with the first Foothills Fall Festival. Since that year, the festival has become a tradition for families all over the region and even all over the world.
Support from our Sponsors allows us to cover many of the expenses involved in producing the festival and they are how we can continue to offer the free areas of the festival as well as the reduced ticket price for the concerts. A Volunteer and City Staff supported committee plans the festival and works year round to produce the event.
A juried Arts and Craft show with free music, activities, and demonstrations fills Broadway in the heart of downtown Maryville. Sixteen acres of adventures for the family fill the Greenbelt park near Blount County's award winning library. At Theater in the Park, the festival has hosted such Artists as Rascal Flatts, Reba, Train, Alan Jackson, Alabama, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bo Diddley, Buddy Guy, Foreigner, Kansas, REO Speedwagon, Sarah Evans, Jason Aldean, Billy Ray Cyrus, Big & Rich, Vince Gill, and more than a hundred more throughout the past ten years. Our goal is to continue this tradition of great entertainment at a great value for all those who live and visit our city during one of the most beautiful times of year.
