Dollywood Welcomes Summer with Exciting Festival
Once again, the most popular theme park in the Smoky Mountains is hosting a grand summer festival for families. The Great American Summer festival in Pigeon Forge is set to be bigger than ever with longer park hours, fireworks celebrations and family-friendly fun.
Dollywood’s Great American Summer Celebration is set to kick off on June 14 at 10:00am. The festival will run until August 3 with patriotic tributes, special music, food and rides. To give families extra time to celebrate summer and enjoy this time together, park hours will also be extended each day of the summer season. Summer park hours are 10:00am to 10:00pm.
To add patriotic pride to the summer festivities, Dollywood will open each day with a live performance of the Star Spangled Banner and close with a colorful fireworks show. The fireworks show, Dolly’s Nights of Many Colors, will feature specially recorded music just for this event.
That’s not all that’s happening in the Smokies this summer! There are even more exciting events scheduled in Pigeon Forge for vacationing families. Paula Deen is set to begin a multi-city tour, and July 4th is just around the corner!
