Private Events

If you are looking for a venue to accommodate a large group of people for any reason, we have solutions at Dancing Bear. The Smoky Mountains are an ideal place for groups to gather, particularly those attending:

  • Family, School and Military Reunions
  • Birthday Parties
  • Bridal and Baby Showers
  • Rehearsal Dinners
  • Wedding Receptions

Our new Lodge gives you a beautiful, spacious facility for fun and fellowship while our Farm-to-Table Restaurant, Dancing Bear Appalachian Bistro, provides fresh, local and artistic cuisine with customizable menus for different budgets. Our Event Staff can help you plan every detail for maximum impact. We can host up to 125 guests with a variety of setups and decoration ideas. Our menus change frequently due to the availability of seasonal ingredients.

The Apple Valley Café is available to reserve for private parties and functions all year long. The charming, country dining room and outdoor seating can accommodate up to 50 guests and offers custom catering. Our Apple Valley Barn Pavilion is an outdoor space that can also be rented for parties and family reunions.

At your request, we can attempt to reserve a row of cabins for your guests so everyone can relax and simply enjoy being together after the party ends.

Call Christi at Dancing Bear at 1-800-369-0111 extension 3 and tell us about your private party plans.
