Annual Festivals at Dollywood

We know so many people who are looking forward to visiting Dollywood in as ‘normal’ a fashion as possible in 2021. The limited operating days and capacity requirements of 2020 prevented couples and families from taking full advantage of their season passes and impromptu visits. While we can’t be certain what the protocols for the 2021 theme park season might be, we know for sure that ‘our’ Dolly is doing everything possible to make your day at Dollywood is as fun and memorable as ever.  Book your cabin early for best availability!

Opening Day is Saturday March 13, 2021
