This family-friendly event is full of live music, local entertainment, craft vendors, educational demonstrations, plenty of activities for the kids, an RMEF Elk Calling Contest, and so much more! Bring your own chairs and blankets, and spend the weekend in the valley of mountains surrounding Maggie Valley’s unrivaled beauty.

Elk Fest proceeds help sustain the growing population of elk that were reintroduced to our area in 2001. Funds support habitat maintenance and create other ways to keep our elk protected and happy.
