Dollywood’s Harvest Festival & Southern Gospel Jubilee
September 29 - October 28
Dollywood’s Harvest Festival
Fall at Dollywood will lift off with the biggest Southern gospel festival in the Smokies, the six week long National Southern Gospel & Harvest Celebration presented by Humana. See FREE concerts featuring gospel artists such as Adam Crabb, Jeff and Sheri Easter, Gold City, Karen Peck & New River, and more!
Unique artisans from around the country visit Dollywood to share their beautiful handmade crafts with guests during Dollywood’s Harvest Festival. In addition to Dollywood’s own skilled craftsmen, many talented artists set up shop to demonstrate a number of traditional crafts. This year’s booths feature inspirational jewelry, paintings, handmade historic games, textile art, woodworking, felt hats, dolls and textiles, pottery, glass jewelry, chainsaw carvings, fiddles, and hand-painted ornaments. Visiting crafters are located in booths throughout the park.
The festival is even more spectacular this season, with thousands of carved and illuminated jack-o-lanterns immersing families in fabulous fall fun. The largest addition ever made to Dollywood’s fall festival, Great Pumpkin LumiNights features artistic sculptures, whimsical scenes and delightful, family-friendly fun throughout Timber Canyon. Great Pumpkin LumiNights also features new pumpkin-themed food options, entertainment and interactive opportunities for park guests to experience an exciting nightly finale during the best fall festival in the Smokies.
