1998 Feast of Tabernacles Sites Update

No matter where you are going for the Feast, those providing your site can plan better if they know you are coming. We recommend that you write or call them and let them know your name, address, telephone number, how many adults, teens, and children are coming with you, and the areas in which you would like to serve (choir, special music, youth classes, etc.).


Gatlinburg Feast Information

Parking permits for the city lot (Reagan Lot) are available for a flat $15 fee. Since parking costs $3 each time that you park at the convention center, this will save you money if you come every day. If you come for evening activities, it could easily save you $30 during the Feast. The permits may be obtained by sending a request for an October parking permit, a self addressed stamped envelope, and a check for $15.00 to:

Atten: Cathy, The City of Gatlinburg, P.O. Box 5, Gatlinburg, TN 37738.
