 “What is ChristyFest in the Smokies?" The answer is simple…and not so simple.  ChristyFest in the Smokies is, at it’s core an annual festival held in Townsend and Del Rio, Tennessee.  The festival is a tribute to and celebration of the beloved and best selling novel by Catherine Marshall, “Christy”, as well as the television series based on the book (1994-1995, the series was filmed in Townsend), and two made for television movies. Now, depending on who you are and what your experience has been, things get more complicated from there.  If you’ve been to ChristyFest in the past, ChristyFest in the Smokies probably means many of the following:

  1. Townsend, the Peaceful Side of  the Smokies
  2. Del Rio, home to Chapel Hollow, the Christy Mission, Ebenezer Baptist Church,
  3. Del Rio Elementary School, the Christmas Store, the AMAZING teachers, principal and support staff – not to mention the students
