Dollywood’s 35th Anniversary Season begins on March 14, 2020 with Festival of Nations (March 14-April 20). The epic stage production of Namaste India and Ole! headline the festival. Namaste India provides guests a journey across India via the myriad dance forms for which the country is known, and Ole!features the self-proclaimed “Gypsy Kings of Comedy.” Popular returning acts are Drumstruck, JigJam and the Invaders Steel Orchestra.
