Delicious Southern barbecue and toe-tappin' bluegrass music. The two seem to go together like Dolly Parton and Porter Wagoner did in the 1960s. You'll get plenty of your favorite down-home delicacies and roots music to boot at the annual Barbeque & Bluegrass Festival at Dollywood. The festival was traditionally offered in the fall, but this year, it will fit in nicely with the awesome spring we've been having this year. The dates are May 26 through June 10.
Those 16 days will be filled with more than 250 live bluegrass concerts, all of which are included in your Dollywood admission. Among the acts to look for this year are the Grascals, The Larkins, Rhonda Vincent & The Rage, Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder, just to name a few.
Some performers are only scheduled for one day, but many are scheduled for multiple dates. All artists will take the stage multiple times on each of their performance dates. Individual show times and venues will be posted each day on the park's entertainment schedule, which you'll receive when you enter the main gates.
Dollywood also will be filled with the mouth-watering aroma of fresh-from-the-smoker barbecue. Where there's smoke, guests will find a variety of delicious meal options. The park's Market Square area is transformed into Barbecue Headquarters, where the plates are piled high with culinary headliners like ribs by the slab, quartered chicken and pulled pork, all prepared on site and served outdoors so guests can soak up the sights, sounds and delicious aromas of this fun event.
However, the one thing you can't find at Dollywood at the moment is ziplines. So anyone looking to enjoy Pigeon Forge, Sevierville or Gatlinburg ziplines will need to look elsewhere. Or course, we recommend you spend a few hours with us at Smoky Mountain Ziplines, the best zipline value in town. We're also not far from Dollywood!
