Let Your Imagination Bloom
Experience The Splendor Of Spring In the Smokies
We can't wait to see you next year! For the 2021 festival, we experienced the beauty, color and flavors of spring in the Smoky Mountains! In addition, we were immersed in the bloom of more than 500,000 vibrant and fragrant flowers across the park. We saw larger-than-life blooming sculptures reaching nearly 15 feet tall and indulge in the garden-fresh dining options created by Dollywood chefs. Finally, the days were made complete with uplifting, inspiring musical performances during the Melodies of Spring Concert Series.
