Dollywood’s Harvest Festival announces fall fun

Dollywood’s Harvest Fall Festival is coming back Sept. 25-Oct. 31, 2020. This event offers something new while keeping the same warm traditions from years prior. 

Dollywood's Great Pumpkin LumiNights captured by Wes Ramey at The Dollywood Company.

Fan favorites like Great Pumpkin LumiNights will expand to Wildwood Grove, giving visitors more to glow about. Additionally, autumnal decorations and landscaping techniques will create a new, but familiar atmosphere in the park.

More than 800 concerts will run throughout the festival, offering a variety of music. Of course, fall fun doesn’t start until guests taste something pumpkin spice flavored. Along with seasonal sweet treats, smoked brisket, turkey legs, roasted corn, and more savory offerings will be available to guests.

Something new is coming to the festival as well, with dozens of colossal pumpkins for guests to marvel at. Pumpkins range from 800 to more than 1,500 pounds, and come from growers across the East Coast.

“We know folks are ready to get out and enjoy the colors of fall and the fresh, crisp Smoky Mountain air,” Dolly Parton said. “This year has been challenging for everyone, but we hope the comfort they feel from coming and visiting us gives them that warm, familiar feeling they’ve shared with their friends and loved ones for so many years here at Dollywood.”

Guests can now buy reduced-price tickets if they enter after 5 p.m. The offer is available online only and is $35. Blackout dates apply. 

Dollywood is open from 10 a.m. – 9 p.m. but closed Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the duration of the festival. For more information, visit or call 1-800-DOLLYWOOD.
