Cherokee Caverns Presents Christmas in the Cave 2022! Come join in for this Family Fun Tradition in Knoxville, TN. Everyone is welcome as we celebrate a little bit of Christmas Magic! Stroll along the Cave path among the Stalactites and Stalagmites with thousands of twinkling Christmas lights and enchanting Christmas music! Visit with Santa and have your picture made with him and remember to bring your Christmas list! PS ~we actually heard Santa loves cookies and a friendly little elf said his favorite is Little Debbie Snacks~ lol! Watch out for the Grinch he will be meeting you around the turns and twists of the cave or he might be lounging in his lair! The Grinch will be doing his best not to catch the Christmas Spirit from you and grow his heart 3x the size! His favorite gift is stinky onions or sour lemons!! What could be more fun than joking around with Cousin Eddie from Christmas Vacation inside of Cherokee Caverns this Christmas Season!!! Cousin Eddie has the Cave all decked out for a fun Christmas Vacation adventure!! We will have lots of unique shopping and yummy food and fun for the whole family!!! Grab a delicious cup of Hot Cocoa or coffee and warm up by the Bonfire. We also have tons of photo ops to share on your social media! The Cave is always a comfy 58 degrees! Our cave path is stroller and wheelchair friendly. We look forward to celebrating this 2022 Holiday Season with You, Your Family & Friends!
