March is chock full of events in Pigeon Forge, and Riverside Towers is the place to stay to be a part of it all. Let’s dive right in to see what you can enjoy on your Pigeon Forge vacation this March:
March is Irish Month at the Titanic Museum! Did you know the Titanic was built in Ireland? Plenty of Irish men and women served as the crew on the ship’s maiden voyage. In fact, there were more Irish folks on board the Titanic than people of any other nationality. It’s no wonder this Pigeon Forge attraction has cause to celebrate!
The Titanic Museum Attraction will present Irish step dancing and live music, comedians and storytellers from Ireland, and more. You can come learn about Irish culture and history and the monumental part this heritage played in building and running the Titanic. You can even explore your Irish background with genealogy experts. To learn more, contact the Titanic Museum Attraction at 800-381-7670.
March 18 – 21, mark your calendars for the 21st annual Pigeon Forge quilting convention. Known simply as “A Mountain Quiltfest,” this event showcases the rich history of quilting in the Smoky Mountains. Quilters of ALL levels are welcome to join in on the celebration of this folk art. This event draws up to 20,000 visitors to the area, with admirers observing the artistry, hard work, and creativity that go into a well-made quilt.
A Mountain Quiltfest features instructors and vendors from across America, and attendees will be able to go to method demonstrations, lectures, and classes as well as special showings of quilted items. Along with this educational experience, the quilters involved—both professional and novice—are competing for tens of thousands of dollars in cash prizes. Who knew quilts could be so exciting?

If you’re more of a pedal to the medal kind of visitor, you won’t want to miss the Spring Corvette Expo here in Pigeon Forge, March 20 – 21.
