When and Where

The Barbeque and Bluegrass Festival will take place from May 24 – June 8, 2014. All of the fun will be at the Dollywood theme park at 2700 Dollywood Parks Boulevard, Pigeon Forge Tennessee 37863.

Free Concerts

Some of the biggest names in bluegrass will be taking the stage at Dollywood this summer. More than 60 different musical acts will perform, including Riders in the Sky, The Time Jumpers, The Willis Clan, Balsam Range, and Hot Club of Cowtown. You can see the full musical lineup on the official Dollywood website.

The best part is, all of these concerts are free! As long as you have a paid pass to Dollywood you’ll be able to hear Grammy winning musicians for the price of admission.

BBQ Favorites

The chefs at Dollywood will be ready for even the heartiest appetites with over 50,000 pounds of BBQ! Just head on over to Market Square to get a big plate of some slow cooked meat slathered in sweet or spicy sauces. Remember to bring a few wet naps, because eating barbeque can get a little messy!
