Dollywood’s popular Backstage Restaurant gets a fiery-fresh new menu for the festival featuring all-new barbecue dishes. The festival’s popular deserts return, too, including an astounding three-pound slice of apple pie cut from a whopping 25-pound pie. This year also offers a new twist on a delicious favorite—rich and creamy banana pudding served in a crispy waffle cone.
Old-fashioned family fun includes watermelon and Sara Lee cobbler eating contests. Free food samples, demonstrations and grilling techniques vary by day. The Sauce Tastin’ Station offers for purchase the spiciest, tangiest and downright hottest-of-the-hot barbecue sauces, including several “made in Tennessee” products.
