I have been in contact with one of the show runners and we have a booth, and he is looking into passes. At the very least he thinks he can get half off passes for those suiting up or running the booth. This will be a finite amount of passes. More details to come.

About the Event
Now, as for the future of Smoky Mountain Fan Fest, Gatlinburg is the PERFECT fit! Gatlinburg is still very close to our home, and we love that. The convention center is also very large, and gives us room to do things we really need to do! We will have over 100 vendor spaces, we will have a better stage area for our charity auction and our cosplay contest, we will have professional photo ops, we will have Q&A panels, plenty of bathrooms, more space for our guests to feel comfortable, and most importantly… air conditioning!
This convention will be the first of its kind in Gatlinburg, and they have already been very welcoming to us. They want us to grow with them, and with the city. We have already locked in future years with them.. The future for Smoky Mountain Fan Fest is bright!
For those of you who travel in for conventions, you won’t find a better destination vacation than Gatlinburg! Amazing hotels and resorts, beautiful scenery, excellent shopping, and restaurants, with very fun nightlife. Your trip to Smoky Mountain Fan Fest can be an ultimate get away with something for the entire family!
We’ve got our dates locked in! We’ve got our location locked in! Now, time to get to work on building an amazing guestlist for 2021! We will have some of our local friends back, we will have some of our most popular guests from 2020 back, but we are adding even more big guests for 2021! Hope you guys are ready…
Vendor spacing will all launch in the upcoming weeks! We will keep you all posted! Let’s take this next step together because, without you all, the first step never would have happened!
