Pigeon Forge June Events To See

Dollywood Splash Country is Open!

June is a great time of year to visit Dollywood Splash Country! The weather is warm enough to enjoy fantastic water rides, but this time of year is just before the crowds arrive. The result? Your family can have free reign of all the slides, raft rides, and log flumes, especially if you visit on a weekday.

See Synchronous Fireflies

Elkmont is one of the few places in the world where thousands of fireflies can be seen blinking in sync – a truly awe-inspiring and mysterious sight to behold. The park service estimates the peak for the fireflies at Elkmont will be June 7 to June 14.

If you don't have a golden ticket to the firefly viewing, there are some alternative places to see synchronous fireflies in the Smokies. There have been reports of this phenomenon on Abrams Creek in Cades Cove and the river in Tremont.
