Spring is in the air and after months of a global pandemic and unexpected park closures, media members recently gathered at Dollywood to celebrate the annual re-opening of the world-famous Dollywood’s 36th season on March 13th, 2021.
Dollywood is an ode to the big-hearted country singer Dolly Parton and is ranked the “8th Best Amusement Park in the World” by TripAdvisor. A world-class theme park with southern charm, a rich heritage, and everything from gospel and rock to exhilarating rollercoasters (some of the best in the US), unique craftsman, and delectable cuisine.
Visitors to Dollywood can enjoy an action-packed Calendar of Events for 2021 with year-round festivals and entertainment. Traditional favorites include the Flower & Food Festival in Spring, Summer Celebration, Harvest Festival, and Great Pumpkin LumiNights in the fall, and Dollywood’s Smoky Mountain Christmas. Other highlights of Dollywood are the famous Cinnamon Bread at Grist Mill, the activities and attractions of Craftsman Valley, one of the largest eagle sanctuaries in the US, family-friendly dinner shows, and award-winning restaurants.
Dollywood is always looking to enhance the guest experience and the off-season months are used to maintain and upgrade the park to the highest standard. Here’s a look at what changes and upgrades we can expect at Dollywood for the season ahead.
