Heritage Happening Gala and Auction

On Saturday, May 15, 2021, the Great Smoky Mountains Heritage Center will host its annual Heritage Happening Gala and Auction at the Hilton Knoxville Airport in Alcoa, TN. This years’ Gala will include LIVE Entertainment from the legendary performers T.G. Sheppard and T. Graham Brown, dinner, dancing and several fabulous auction items to bid on.

This year we need your help more than ever and your generosity will make a difference in the lives of children and adults who rely upon the Heritage Center to provide a true representation on Smoky Mountain culture.

Based on current guidance from the State, we are planning on an in-person Heritage Happening Gala at the Hilton Knoxville Airport.  However, we have set up two contingency plans in case circumstances change for the worse between now and the event date. As I indicated earlier, the scheduled date is Saturday evening, May 15, 2021.  We anticipate that COVID-19 precautions will be required, such as temperature screenings at the door, social distancing, and the wearing of masks when not actively enjoying the evening meal and/or drinks.
