Pigeon Forge is a fantastic place. Perhaps the best time of year to visit this beautiful part of the world is summer. Beyond the great weather and unbelievably beautiful sites, no other attraction brings as many visitors to the area as Dollywood. Here’s everything you need to know about Dollywood’s Summer Celebration and experiencing the best of summer fun in Pigeon Forge this year.
Perhaps the best part of Dollywood’s Summer Celebration is the amazing weather in Pigeon Forge this time of year. Gone are the cold winds and snow, and in their place are sunny skies, long days, and gorgeous weather. There is no better time than summer to visit Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, and there’s no better time to visit Dollywood than during the Summer Celebration.
Summertime at Dollywood means more time to enjoy everything the park has to offer. Starting June 22, and running until August 4, the park has extended opening hours from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. This means that you have more time to experience the incredible rides the park features, including Wild Eagle and Lightning Rod.
Not only does summer mean longer hours at the park, but it also means it’s time for nightly fireworks displays. Each night has a new firework display to light up the night and help make your visit to Pigeon Forge’s premier attraction that much more memorable.
Coming this summer to Dollywood is the amazing Wildwood Grove. Journey past sparkling creeks, through a charming village and under the mighty Wildwood tree. This enchanting new addition to the park, part of a $37 million upgrade, features a whole host of new attractions – including the 453-meter suspended roller coaster known as The Dragonflier. Other new rides in the new Wildwood Grove addition include the Mad Mockingbird, Sycamore Swing, Treetop Tower, Benjamin Bear, and Frogs and Fireflies.
Dollywood is a family destination like no other. From the wonder of the park itself to the high-energy musical fun of Dreamland Dive-In and other shows, Dollywood brings out the kid in everyone and brings families together. If you are looking for a vacation you’ll never forget, make sure Pigeon Forge is on the to-do list this summer!
