* Dollywood’s Harvest Festival *
September 23rd to October 29th

Dollywood’s Harvest Festival presented by Humana provides bushels of fun thanks to everyone’s favorite Smoky Mountain tradition, Dollywood’s Great Pumpkin LumiNights. Dollywood stays open late each evening giving families more time to enjoy the glow of thousands of carved pumpkins throughout the park.

Dollywood guests also can enjoy the spectacular artistry of visiting crafters from across the country or sample the special harvest-themed food items from Dollywood’s award-winning foods team. Each day is a picture-perfect opportunity for families to enjoy the experiences of a Smoky Mountain harvest.
