This will be the fourth year of True Blue Trucks Magazine's Fall Ford Truck Fest. The weekend's festivities are open to all generations and years of Ford Trucks! (Broncos welcome too - they are Ford trucks!)

The Great Smoky Mountains area has plenty of activities for the whole family. You are more than welcome to venture out on your own and explore, shop, hike, horseback ride, sight see, or just sit and relax in the fresh mountain air. True Blue Ford Truck Magazine and our staff have organized events over the next couple days that can help you enjoy the area and have fun with your FORD. If you wish to find a seat to ride on a Daily Cruise - ask at our information table. If you get lost or have a vehicle malfunction (never in a Ford) please call our hotline 865-690-0522. Maps of the area are available at our information desk.

All we ask is that you enjoy yourself, have fun, meet new fellow Bronco friends, and stay safe!

Host Hotel: Tally Ho Inn (all events will begin or take place from the Tally Ho.) Click here for a map.
