A seven-time award winner of America’s Best Christmas Event, Dollywood’s Smoky Mountain Christmas Festival presented by Humana, Nov. 5 through Jan. 3, 2016, features four million holiday lights and spectacular holiday performances, including Dollywood’s A Christmas Carol, an all-new adaptation of the Dickens classic.
In A Dollywood Christmas Carol, the three spirits of Christmas visit stodgy Ebenezer Scrooge in this inspiring story of redemption told through song and story. The original musical adaptation entertains audiences with a 15-member cast, fully orchestrated musical tracks, Victorian scenery and period costuming. Familiar holiday favorites Christmas in the Smokies, An Appalachian Christmas, ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, O’ Holy Night, Christmas with The Kingdom Heirs and Carol of the Trees return, too.
From the more than 20 rides and attractions and elaborate holiday decorations to the twinkling lights and Christmas-themed menus, Dollywood captures every essence of the holidays while celebrating the true meaning of Christmas.
Operating days vary during the Christmas season, and guests are encouraged to view the complete event schedule when planning a trip.
