As summer comes to an end and millions of visitors flock to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, TN to see the leaves change in the fall, there is one last event that brings the town to life (well…to a stand-still really)…that’s the Fall Grand Rod Run at the Grand Resort Hotel and Convention Center. Locals have always called it the Fall Grand Rod Run, but apparently it’s called Grand Run Fall…whatever you call it, it’s a huge car show (or rod run) that is mostly made up of…you guessed it…hot rods. This is the “sister” event to the Spring Grand Rod Run Show held in April.As was suggested for the Shades of the Past Car Show, if you have no interest in car shows, then it is highly suggested to avoid Pigeon Forge, TN September 16-19 as it might be difficult to get around the Parkway & back and forth from Gatlinburg to Pigeon Forge.

You’ll be in heaven as you walk the parkway, cruise the strip, listen to classic music, scope the tweaked out cars, etc. The Fall Rod Run is a auto-lover's Paradise!
