For nearly 20 years, Dollywood has kicked off its new season with Festival of Nations. It has become a beloved guest favorite. Each year we host familiar favorites as well as some big-names that are new to Dollywood.
Festival of Nations is an experience you can maximize by planning. There are several shows—all are included with your park admission—as well as menu items and merchandise from around the globe.
With as much entertainment as Dollywood has to offer, it would be impossible to see it all in one day (plus making time to eat, let alone do anything else). We recommend planning for at least two days if you want the full Festival of Nations experience.
