Join us in tradition on May 1st to welcome home East Tennessee’s own Dolly Parton.  This event is filled with extravagant floats, marching bands, horses, and entertainers.  The grad marshall, of course, is Dolly herself.  A real treat for all the Dolly fans out there.

Frequently there are over 50,000 visitors come to the Parkway in Pigeon Forge to watch this annual fun-filled event. The parade kicks off at 6 PM with the route starting at traffic light #6 and continues North on the Parkway all the way to traffic light #3.

The Annual Dolly Homecoming Parade is completely free. This annual event is almost three decades running. We recommend early arrival to this event to get an ideal spot.

While you’re here to see Dolly be sure to check out other local attractions and activities, and if looking for a place to stay, be sure to check out Bear Camp Cabins for your family vacation needs.
