There are certain ways to tell when spring is arriving to the Smoky Mountains, including longer days of sunshine, blooming wildflowers and the opening of Dollywood for another season of fun, adventure and thrills! One of the highlights of the spring season at Dollywood is the Festival of Nations, a month-long celebration with music, dance, food and art from all over the world! Here are the top 4 things you need to know about attending the Festival of Nations at Dollywood:
1. What to Expect
The Festival of Nations at Dollywood is a wonderful way to kick off the spring season with your family and friends in the Smoky Mountains! This event features musicians, dancers and artists from across the globe who will delight you in performances that take place all throughout the park!

Don’t forget to enjoy everything else that the park has to offer! For example, ride thrilling roller coasters, fun family rides, unique souvenir shops and much more!
2. Ticket Information
One of the awesome things about the Festival of Nations is that it is included with your admission ticket into Dollywood! There are a variety of Dollywood tickets available, including single day tickets, 2 day tickets, 3 day tickets and season passes. Since there is so much to see in the park in just one day, the multiple day tickets are often the best value!

The Festival of Nations at Dollywood runs from mid-March to mid-April, but be sure to check the official Dollywood operating schedule when planning your trip as the park is closed on certain days.
