In light of the devastation in Japan it is more important than ever to celebrate our fellow man, whether he lives in Gatlinburg, Japan, Africa or Spain. Each year at Dollywood this very sentiment is abundant at the Festival of Nations where performers from around the world share their local customs and traditions with you in the Great Smoky Mountains.
This year the festival runs from March 26 to May 2 at the famous Dollywood location in Pigeon Forge. There is so much to see and do that you just might want to extend your vacation a few more days to take in all of the acts participating in the Festival of Nations. You can witness the artistic dancers from Argentina, the lively beats shown in DRUM! of Nova Scotia, tap your feet to the beats of Trinidad and listen to a new instrument, called the Keona, which hails from Switzerland.
And while you are already at Dollywood it will be hard not to stop in for a delicious lunch at the cafe, pick up some souvenirs for fellow Dolly Parton fans and learn more about your favorite country singer. Everyone in your family can find something to enjoy at Dollywood, especially kids who will be wowed and amazed as they learn about different cultures. Dollywood is located just minutes away from your luxury Gatlinburg Cabin rental at Elk Springs Resort.
