Known for its historic significance and natural beauty, Cumberland Gap will be the site of this unique festival that celebrates the history and heritage of communities along the new Discover Tennessee White Lightning Trail.

From the Civil War to modern day America, The White Lightning Festival will tell the story of those rugged, self-reliant people that made this area the topic of movies and gave birth to one of America's fastest growing sports - stock car racing. The White Lightning Trail, which begins in Knox County (Knoxville, TN) travels through eight other counties including Anderson, Union, Campbell, Claiborne, Grainger, Jefferson, Hamblen and Cocke. These communities share a rich heritage and that will be on display in the form of demonstrations, food, antique cars and a variety of music.
