Rev Up the Fun at the Pigeon Forge Rod Run

If you’re a fan of classic cars, the Pigeon Forge Rod Run is guaranteed to get your motor running! As one of the biggest car shows in the nation, this annual Pigeon Forge event brings thousands of visitors to the Great Smoky Mountains for two days of hot rod heaven. Located right around the corner from our cabins in Pigeon Forge, this awesome festival is a must see for the muscle car maniac in your family.

When and Where

The Pigeon Forge Rod Run will be held on Friday April 11 and Saturday April 12. Unlike previous rod runs, this year’s festivities will be held at the brand new LeConte Center located at 2986 Teaster Lane, Pigeon Forge TN 37863.

Acorn Cabin Rentals is just minutes away from the LeConte Center! Traffic can get very heavy during the Rod Run, so it’s a good idea to stay close to all the action.

We are also offering some great specials during the Pigeon Forge Rod Run, to make your stay in the Smokies even more affordable. When you book three nights with us in April, you’ll get an additional fourth night absolutely free! Juse use the code 4Free13 when making your reservation to take advantage of this awesome discount.


Tickets for both days of the Rod Run cost $10 for adults. Children 12 years old and younger get in free.

If you’re looking for a way to see some awesome classic cars without actually going to the Rod Run, consider setting up a lawn chair along Pigeon Forge’s famous Parkway. Plenty of spectators line the sidewalk and watch the endless parade of muscle cars drive on by for free.

Car Show and Prizes

The Pigeon Forge Rod Run will be giving away $8,000 in cash prizes! If you own a gorgeous hot rod, be sure to bring it down to the Rod Run for a chance to win big. Awards will be given to the top 25 cars, and the very best prizes will be given to the “Ultimate 5” cars. Everyone who comes to the Rod Run will also be eligible for some great door prizes!
