Dollywood Rocks The Smokies

Dollywood Rocks The Smokies

So much of what makes Dollywood such an iconic place for returning visitors and return vacations is that we can count on classic special events like Festival of the Nations and the Harvest Festival to return year after year - but occasionally, Dollywood likes to shake things up with a new festival or special event and on September 3rd, 2016, they will host Rock The Smokies throughout the park!

What is Rock The Smokies? A special event for labor day weekend where seven popular Christian Rock groups will play two shows - one at 4:00PM and one at 7:00PM at the famous Celebrity Theater on park. The purchase of a festival ticket for Rock the Smokies includes a full day admission to Dollywood.

The talent list includes:

  • Newsboys

  • For King & Country

  • Stars Go Dim

  • We Are Messengers

  • 7eventh Time Down

  • I Am They

  • Bob Smiley

And there will be additional Christian artists playing throughout venues in the park.
