Two thrilling new shows highlight a stellar lineup of international performances during Dollywood’s 2016 Festival of Nations.

This year’s event features more than 20 countries, represented through authentic demonstrations of music, dance, food and art. Traditional cuisine and cultural activities offer a glimpse into the traditions of other countries.


The new Rhythm of the Dance is a dance and music extravaganza featuring a wealth of Irish talent that demonstrates a fresh and modern view on traditional Irish step dancing. The show features a live band, three tenors and 22 dancers.


Another new addition to this festival is the Canadian sensation, TIMBER! This festive, high-energy show features epic feats of strength and agility combined with a traditional folk soundtrack.
