Dollywood's Christmas Celebration
The Christmas season is a festive time of year to visit the Smoky Mountains. Make memories at Dollywood during the park’s popular Smoky Mountain Christmas celebration.
The seasonal spectacular, open now through January 1, 2018, dazzles with four million lights, a chance to meet Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer, visits with Santa,
the second annual “Parade of Many Colors,” and a spectacular Christmas atmosphere throughout the park. A variety of award-winning shows are performed on multiple stages,
including “Christmas in the Smokies,” the festival’s headline show that features singers, dancers and musicians performing favorite holiday tunes. Other shows include
“It’s a Wonderful Life!,” “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas,” and the acoustic “An Appalachian Christmas.” Fill up on scrumptious holiday treats and seasonal flavors at
food vendors and restaurants throughout Dollywood.
Dolly’s personal Christmas memories are at the foundation of her newest attraction, Dolly Parton’s Smoky Mountain Adventures Dinner & Show. The Christmas show
on stage through December 31 is an entertaining mix of Christmas music, comedy, acrobatic feats, an exclusive bluegrass version of “The Nutcracker,” a twist on
the classic “12 Days of Christmas,” a nativity scene with live animals, and a rendition of the classic “Go Tell It On The Mountain.” The eye-popping entertainment
features $2 million in special effects and includes a tasty feast.
