Learn more about TN SQUARE & ROUND DANCE CONVENTION.
Every year, the Tennessee Square and Round Dance Convention brings an incredible event to the Gatlinburg convention center and W. L. Mills Conference Center. For three days the streets of Gatlinburg come to life with ladies in beautiful square dance attire and their gentleman partners in their finest western wear. Not only do we have square dancers from all across the state, but from all around the area. Last year’s attendance was over 1200 with dancers from 24 states attending. Many come early or stay for a few days following the convention to explore Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and our Great Smoky Mountains, the nations most visited National Park.
The TN State Convention is now one of the largest and best dancing events in the country. The convention features a live band on Friday and Saturday nights and all dancing is on wood flooring.
