About the Area

The Lakeside of the Smokies Balloon Fest is located in Dandridge – in the heart of East Tennessee.  Jefferson County, Tennessee, is nestled between two lakes in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains!

Our area is full of history and long-standing traditions. If you’re visiting us from out of town, be sure to take time to visit one of our many local restaurants or shops.

For a full list of area accommodations, restaurants, shops, and more, visit Jefferson County’s tourism department’s website.

We look forward to hosting you!
