Dollywood introduces new summertime festival: Rock the Smokies

ZZ Rock the SmokiesTheme park worship experience combines thrills and compelling celebration

By Wes Ramey

Guests can experience a rocking worship time Dollywood-style as the park plans to Rock the Smokies (Saturday, Sept. 5, 2015) during the theme park’s newest event, a Christian music festival featuring Third Day and For King & Country. Additional artists will be announced at a later date. Dollywood is partnering with Premier Festivals to produce a powerful Christian rock experience in D.P.’s Celebrity Theater. The day-long celebration provides time for both thrill rides and a Christian festival for one great price.

Organizers anticipate Rock the Smokies will be an energizing event for festival-goers, student ministries and families to spiritually reconnect and recharge as the summer comes to a close. For a complete lineup of festival performances, announcement of artists and show times, please visit

Admission to Dollywood, along with a reserved seating festival ticket, is included with purchase of a Rock the Smokies ticket. Additional Christian artists will perform to the general public throughout the park. Discount prices are available for groups and those who purchase tickets early. VIP packages will be available for purchase and will include meet and greet opportunities. Tickets for Rock the Smokies go on sale in February.
