The Festival of Nations at Dollywood

Hey Dollywood lovers! If you're going to be staying with us here at the Ramada in Pigeon Forge later this month, you won't want to miss Festival of Nations at Dollywood! This favorite annual event features entertainment, dancing, and culture from all around the world for a few brilliant weeks at Dollywood. From March 18th through April 9th, Dollywood undergoes a cultural transformation like no other.


Take a trip to the African continent during the acclaimed show Mother Africa. Professional performers from all across Africa star in this jaw dropping spectacle of acrobatics, dance, and live music. Colorful costumes and in depth choreography make up this world famous show that celebrates the rich and storied cultural history of the oldest inhabited continent in the world.


For another journey back in time, enjoy the immersive sounds of Atahualpa - a musical mashup of ancient Incan instruments mixed with contemporary sounds of today in an homage to one of the greatest civilizations to ever have lived.


Or how about a Caribbean getaway? The Invaders Steel Orchestra is one of the most accomplished and important steel drum bands in the world. When you watch this band, you'll think you went on an island excursion without ever leaving the park!

There's so much more coming up at Dollywood's Festival of Nations. Be sure to check their website for a full schedule. And feel free to ask our staff for information on more live music in the area!
