Welcome to the 8th annual Legends of the Smokies Invitational website. We are excited to share our diverse area with your family January 31– February 2, 2025. Please take a moment to explore our site and discover what we have to offer.

Restaurants and Food

There are many restaurants and food opportunities within Harrah’s. The Gordon Ramsey’s
food court houses a pizza station, burger station, bakery, salads, a la carte items, and seating for
700. Concessions will be available within the Competition facility, as well as outside the awards
area. Concessions will be open for breakfast each morning with breakfast sandwiches, and
throughout the competition with hearty sandwich, salad and burger options.
It is recommended to make reservations if you would like to dine at Brio, Guy Fieri’s, Ruth’s
Chris, or Wicked Weed Brewery. Wicked Weed Brewery is a full-service restaurant, and Selu Garden is a good option on
the far side of the facility. There is a Starbucks at each end by the hotel towers. Wicked Weed, Guy Fieri’s and Brio will be open for lunch and dinner. Ultrastar Entertainment also serves food beginning at 1PM. Please see for full dining details.


Come spend your weekend in one spot, with the competition, lodging, dining, and entertainment all under one roof. Or, get out and explore the native area rich in history and culture.

ULTRASTAR- All athletes will receive a 2-hr play card to the arcade at Harrah’s. While the free play card is not redeemable for prizes, athletes will be able to hang out and play the variety of games offered. Ultrastar also houses a full bowling alley, as well as food and drink options.

UltraStar will open early at 10AM throughout the weekend for our Legends athletes and families.  If your athlete would like to pick up their gift early, please stop by the check-in table at the entrance to the Convention Center. On Saturday and Sunday, boys will check-in on the 3rd floor by their competition hall.

The Great Smoky Mountains offer many activities for a variety of interests. Come hike our beautiful mountain trails, ski down the slopes, take a train through the historic terrain, golf, fish and learn about the area’s roots in historic Cherokee. Relax, have fun eating, shopping, and gaming in the casino resort.
