March 17-19, 2017
Smoky Mountain Convention Center
Pigeon Forge, TN

Seesoning is a brand new weekend getaway designed for Gen X-ers (ages 37-55) and Baby Boomers (ages 52-71), but we won't be checking IDs at the door. Let's just say that Seesoning is for those of us who (maybe reluctantly) realize we're not quite as young as we used to be, but who aren't ready (and maybe never will be ready) to join the senior adult ranks.

Seesoning is for adults who are ready for "a great time and a meaningful time at the same time" (our long-time Concoxions' philosophy). We want you to enjoy yourself. And we want to encourage you to live life to the fullest by growing closer to God.

Program guests include

Point of Grace and band

Actor Curt Cloninger

Comedian/speaker Mike Williams

Mike and Kim Blackwood and band

Sessions will feature incredible drama by Curt Cloninger, hilarious comedy from Mike Williams, praise and worship led by Mike & Kim Blackwood and band, and great music by Point of Grace. Point of Grace's Friday evening concert will feature the group's all time top radio hits (28 songs hit number 1 on the Christian charts) as they celebrate 25 years of ministry in 2017.  Saturday morning will offer a choice of smaller group sessions on a variety of topics and interests. 

For the first part of Saturday evening we'll all head to Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede Dinner Attraction. The Four-Course Feast includes a mouth-watering tender whole rotisserie chicken, delicious hickory smoked barbecue pork loin, Dixie Stampede's original creamy vegetable soup, scrumptious homemade biscuit, hot buttered corn on the cob, tasty herb-basted potato, specialty dessert, and unlimited Pepsi products, tea, or coffee.  Vegetarian and gluten free meals are also available. Seesoning participants will also receive a complimentary soft drink in a souvenir mug during the saloon pre-show. 

You'll also have plenty of time to enjoy the sights, sounds, tastes, (and dare we say shopping) of the Pigeon Forge / Gatlinburg area.

We've arranged for special lodging discounts at four different hotels at a variety of price points and you will be able to make lodging arrangements online through a dedicated Seasoning lodging page, or if you prefer have a single phone contact for all four facilities.

Feel free to contact us any time if you have questions or need more information.
