If you are vacationing in the Smokies this week and are longing to hear some of the homegrown sounds of Tennessee, Sevierville should be one of your primary destinations as the 14th Annual Dumplin Valley Bluegrass Festival returns to town September 19 through 21. This popular annual music event takes place at the Dumplin Valley Farm RV Park off Tennessee Hwy. 66 near Interstate 40.
This year, more than a dozen bluegrass acts from notables to newcomers will be taking the stage. Headliners this year including Rhonda Vincent and The Rage; Cordle, Jackson & Salley; and the Lonesome River Band. Other acts include Jimbo Whaley & Greenbrier, Junior Sisk & Ramblers Choice, The Crowe Brothers, Balsam Range, The Little Roy & Lizzy Show and Flatt Lonesome.
In addition to the live music performances, which run from approximately noon until 11 p.m. nightly, there will be bluegrass workshops and arts and crafts. Food vendors will also be on hand to tempt your taste buds, and the RV park features a large number of primitive campsite and campsites with water and electric hookups for those wanting to stay on site. A bathhouse and picnic pavilion are available to accommodate guests' other needs.
But be sure to leave some room in your schedule this weekend to have some fun with us in Pigeon Forge. After you leave Sevierville, zipline fun awaits at Smoky Mountain Ziplines, located less than two miles off the Parkway. Our outdoor canopy tour experience will leave you exhilarated and give you plenty of stories to take home with you.
