After a brief off-season, Dollywood opens its gates by the 2nd or 3rd weekend of March, so if the timing is right, you can come visit Dollywood when it first opens!

Not only does this mean you could be first in line to check out new rides and roller coasters, but Dollywood also starts its season with its annual Festival of Nations event that brings musicians and performers from across the globe.
