With countless attractions and malls to do your Christmas shopping, it’s easy to see why so many come to our city during the holiday season. One of the biggest events that is synonymous with this time of year in Pigeon Forge is Dollywood’s Smoky Mountain Christmas!

This Christmas festival runs from November 9 through January 4 and consists of light displays, decorations and holiday performances. A five-time winner of America’s Best Christmas Event, the Smoky Mountain Christmas Festival has five popular shows including the new Dollywood’s A Christmas Carol, a new version of an all-time classic featuring a hologram performance of Dolly Parton herself.

Other shows available during this time are Christmas in the Smokies, An Appalachian Christmas, ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, O’ Holy Night, Christmas with The Kingdom Heirs and Carol of the Trees.

The scenery and décor throughout the park is another one of the reasons this event has had so much success. Over four million lights are on display in addition to special holiday decorations on rides, restaurants and shops. The restaurants even have Christmas-themed menus!
