What's the big event August 24-26?

I'm trying to find reasonable lodging to come to Bluegrass in the Smokies Aug. 24-26. Everything is either booked or double in price. Is something else big going on that weekend? I won tickets to Bluegrass but can't find a place to stay! Whew!

I wonder if it's the Beach Boys concert at D. Clarks Am. Bandstand on the 22nd has anything to do with it. Here is some other stuff going on;

Ooooh - Could be the International Mercury Owner's Assoc. car show, although I don't think it's as big as the ones in September.

well- it's really the rooms from S'Ville back toward Kodak, Dandridge and Knoxville that are booked...... seems to be lots of rooms in PF and G'Burg ( though they are higher than normal, too). Strange!

I have been shocked at the increase in cost for hotel rooms. We saw it in March when we went to Florida, and then when we wanted a room in G-burg last weekend. The Clarion wanted $200 for one night. When I have looked into Hamptons earlier in the summer, which is the hotel chain we like the most, they were all over $100, and over towards Hendersonville NC they wanted $150 a night. I think hotels are just rising like everything else.

You might want to try some cabin companies for last minute deals. But do your homework, because that's what I tried to do last weekend and we did find one that was $85 a night - but it turned out to be dirty. With a little more digging I could have found a better place.

NASCAR Nextel Cup race in Bristol ! Rates go sky high and people stay as far as 2 hours away to get a hotel room. Last year our friends went and they had to stay in NC - couldn't find a hotel room within 2 hours of Bristol Motor Speedway in Tenn.

well - I guess it's all of the above! LOL. Anyway- thanks for the replies. I can't come anyway - I won tickets to the Bluegrass event at Riverside but can't go because they are just for Thursday - have to work. Best wishes, everybody!
