The Dollywood Summer Celebration is a fantastic seasonal event where the park comes alive with brilliant summer colors, including a row of sunshine-yellow rocking chairs surrounded by technicolor trees! If you look up, you’ll also notice rainbow-hued pool noodles suspended above your head and a seemingly endless blanket of radiant kites gently blowing in the wind! All of these warm colors are sure to put you in the perfect mood as you prepare to enjoy the park’s spectacular lineup of thrill rides, shows and attractions! Feel the summer breeze whip through your hair on roller coasters like the Lightning Rod, Thunderhead and Wild Eagle!

2. Summer Celebration Tasting Pass

One of the best things about visiting Dollywood is the park’s incredible assortment of food, ranging from delicious southern cooking to the best cinnamon bread on the planet! The culinary delights get even more exciting during the Summer Celebration, as you’ll discover special summer foods such as Hibachi Skillet Chicken, Loaded Chicken Nachos, Pork Belly on a Stick and Southern Fried Corn! While you can purchase each item individually, the best deal is the Tasting Pass where you can taste up to five of the festival foods!

3. Incredible Live Shows

You won’t want to miss the Gazillion Bubble Show, a family friendly show where millions of bubbles envelop the entire theater! Some of the other shows throughout the park include Forever Country, Harmonies of the Heart, Kingdom Heirs and the Wild Roots Band. Be sure to stick around for a special 30 minute dance party in the evening, which takes place in the Wildwood Grove section of the park!

4. Breathtaking Drone and Fireworks Show

The grand finale to the Dollywood Summer Celebration is the Sweet Summer Nights 3D Drone and Fireworks show! This spectacular show features hundreds of drones dancing through the sky as they tell a unique Dollywood story with 3D animations and a symphony of light!
