Largest Small-Bore Event in the United States Returns to Townsend
TOWNSEND, Tenn. – The annual Smoky Mountain Crawl, the nation’s largest small-bore event, takes place June 8-10 at the Townsend Visitors Center. Approximately 1,200 attendees come with small bikes like Honda Groms and Kawaski Z125s and scooters like Yamaha Zumas or Ruckuses.
The Smoky Mountain Crawl sees 80 percent of its attendees come from out-of-state and countries like Norway, Israel and Canada.
The event is quite the party with a full schedule of games, raffles and races. It’s free to attend and not limited to small-bore bikes—all bike sizes are welcome.
The Smoky Mountain Tourism Development Authority, the tourism branch of the Blount Partnership, encourages motorcyclists and groups like the Smoky Mountain Crawl to take advantage of what the Smokies and Townsend area have to offer.
The raffle tickets are sold to raise money for charity. Last year, the event raised $25,000 for Hearts and Hands, a nonprofit that raises funds for college scholarships for Townsend residents.
