This March Dolly Parton launched Dollywood’s Season of Showstoppers. The entertainment team at Dollywood has lined up more entertainment options in 2018 than in any other year. By the entertainment I was able to witness at the preview, Dollywood is going to have an amazing year. Here is what to expect throughout the year:
Through April 9 is the Festival of Nations. I love to walk through Dollywood during the festival of Nations to see all the flags, food and entertainment from around the world. It is a great way to experience different cultures.
The all-new Spring Mix series runs April 11-19 and offers 3 weeks of performances from amazing music artists features an array of musical genres. All concerts are included with a park admission
May 25-June 10 is Dollywood’s Barbeque & Bluegrass which has been very popular over the years and is the perfect way to kick off Summer. More than 350 concerts take place during the festival along with all the barbeque you desire. What a great combination.
The summer celebration kicks off June 16 and runs through Aug 5. There are extended park hours from 10am-10pm so you can enjoy all the rides, shows and food while making unforgettable family memories. There are several new entertainment shows to enjoy including DRUMline Live!, America’s Got Talent finalists iLuminate and to top it all off a fireworks show every night.
Fall is my favorite season and Dollywood presents an amazing Harvest Festival that features hundreds of carved pumpkins, harvest foods, crafters, performances and the popular Great Pumpkin Luminights which will be bigger and better than last year!
Dollywood’s Smoky Mountain Christmas is one of my families favorite Christmas traditions. It has everything to make you feel like you are walking through a Christmas movie. Millions of Christmas lights, wonderful Christmas music, classic Christmas performances like “It’s a Wonderful Life” and “O Holy Night”. I so appreciate that Dollywood brings in the story of Christ at Christmas.
I hope y’all get to enjoy Dollywood sometime this year. There are so many wonderful things to see. I can’t wait to experience more this year!
