Hello August!

Hello August!


The long days of summer are passing, but we aren’t slowing down at Tweetsie Railroad.

First, Pablo, Uniqua, and Tyron, from The Backyardigans, the hit pre-school series by Nickelodeon, will be here to meet, greet, and take photos with our guests on August 4th-6th.

Next, Riders In The Sky, also known as, America’s Favorite Cowboys will return to Tweetsie Railroad on August 12th & 13th to entertain our guests with Grammy Award-winning music and comedy.

Last, but not least, August will round out with our Railroad Heritage Weekend on August 26th-27th. A full weekend of events are planned to celebrate the history and heritage of the railroad, including the 100th Birthday of Tweetsie Railroad’s own Locomotive No. 12.
