Center Stage at Showstreet Palace

Scavenger Hunt of DreamMore

Your group is divided into teams and each team is given a list of “Dolly-isms,” collective memorabilia, and unique features that are located inside the resort and throughout the grounds of the resort. The first team to find each location – and take a selfie of the entire team with each item – wins the race.

Smoky Mountain Picnic

The country’s most visited national park, Great Smoky Mountain National Park, is located just out the back door of the resort. For a truly immersive experience, the resort will send your group off with gourmet bagged lunches and refreshments, as well as a list of top sights and how to access them, like the observation tower on the top of Clingmans Dome and the plethora of remote waterfalls and mountain streams.

Field Day on the Event Lawn

DreamMore Resort’s event lawn is located at the base of the meeting room terrace and offers the perfect space for your cornhole tournament, relay race, and team-building exercises. You bring the games and and we will provide a safe and even playing field on an artificial turf surface.

Wine, Cheese, and Palettes

A twist on the popular “Paint Nites” that have taken the country by storm, this event equips each person with a small wooden palette that has been primed for painting. Then, while you sample different wine and cheese pairings, an instructor will lead the group, step by step, in painting a custom scene.

Taste of Lightning

Moonshine is representative of the area's deep-rooted sense of individualism and autonomy. People used to view making white lightning as a way of shunning outside authority. Others cooked up the sour mash just to keep up with tradition like their fathers and grandfathers before them. Inspired entrepreneurs began to produce legal moonshine in licensed distilleries across the region. Pigeon Forge moonshine distilleries have become very popular with Smoky Mountain visitors. Guests can take distillery tours, see the moonshining process, sample free moonshine and take some of the mountains home with them!
