Explore Dollywood’s I Will Always Love You Music Festival at a Dollywood Resort


March 15, 2024

With the opening of Dollywood comes much anticipation, and we’re kicking off the park's 39th season with a one-of-a-kind Dolly-inspired festival. Dollywood’s I Will Always Love You Music Festival begins March 9 and runs through April 14, and both of Dollywood’s world-class resorts are pulling out all the stops to make this festival truly memorable.

At Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort and Spa, Camp DW hosts are spreading the love with daily crafts, complimentary s’mores and heartwarming bedtime stories in The Barn. On select evenings, family movie nights will be offered to savor those precious moments with loved ones.

Love (and music) is in the air at the resort with special live entertainment offered each day. Throughout their stay, guests may enjoy an array of roaming performers around the resort. Guests also can delight in special live entertainment in The Atrium on select evenings from 7-9 p.m.

Resort guests can indulge in festival-inspired treatments in The Spa. From luxurious facials, to soothing mani-pedis, our skilled spa technicians will leave guests feeling like relaxed.

An assortment of festive culinary offerings also will be available in both The Lounge and Song & Hearth: A Southern Eatery. Our culinary team has poured its heart into crafting the perfect menu for all guests to enjoy, featuring specialty items such as a beer cheese philly, grilled vegetable salad and blackberry-lemon buttermilk pie.


At Dollywood’s HeartSong Lodge & Resort, a variety of themed crafts and activities will be offered each day of the festival, including Dolly BINGO on select evenings and themed Smoky Mountain Stuffies. Join Camp DW hosts daily at 11 a.m. as they read books from the Imagination Library around the lobby fireplace. Families can wind down at The Back Porch at 6:30 p.m. for movie nights, then gather around the cozy wood-burning fire pit with for complimentary Campfire Roasties under the stars from 7-8 p.m.

Lovely melodies can be heard daily from the trolley lobby, with live entertainment Monday-Wednesday from 9 - 11 a.m. and Thursday-Sunday from 9 a.m. - noon. Live music also will take place nightly in the main lobby, with talented artists appearing Sunday-Thursday from 6-9 p.m. and Friday-Saturday at 8 and 9 p.m.

Nothing says “I Will Always Love You” quite like the festival-inspired culinary offerings at Ember & Elm: Tastes Rooted in the Smokies. Resort guests can indulge in an assortment of signature dishes, including spiced strawberry grilled salmon, sweet corn and poblano soup, and a blueberry-lavender bread pudding.
