Tennessee’s tax free weekend is coming up and spending your weekend in Pigeon Forge is a great way to take full advantage of the no tax shopping! The tax free weekend starts on Friday, Aug. 5, starting at 12:01 a.m. on Friday and lasts until 11:59 p.m. the following Sunday night. The outlet malls are the perfect way to get the best bang for your buck, but they will be crowded so be prepared to be patient!
If you’re not familiar with Tennessee’s tax free weekend be sure you know all the rules and restrictions. Most all clothing and school supplies under $100 are tax exempt and computers that are under $1,500 are exempt. If you have any other questions about items that may or may not be exempt check out more info here.
The Tennessee Museum of Aviation is only one of the many Tennessee attractions offering free admission this Saturday in honor of Bill Haslam’s inauguration. The inaugural theme, “Tennesseans: Working Together, Moving Forward,” has inspired Haslam to ask that Tennessee cultural establishments, tourist attractions, museums and other points of interest open their doors to the public at no charge on Inauguration Day. This will encourage Tennesseans to celebrate and take part in the history, culture and heritage of our state on this special day.
The Tennessee Museum of Aviation is located at the airport and will be open Saturday from 10 am – 5 pm. You can see a full list of all participating attractions here.
