If you’re looking ahead to Labor Day and want to plan one last memorable experience for summer 2017, you need to put Dollywood’s Rock the Smokies on your calendar now. It is a great way to refresh and rejuvenate and put an exclamation point on your summer.
This annual festival has become a favorite for guests and families who are looking for an exceptional show with an inspiring message. Rock the Smokies takes place Saturday, Sept. 2 with three shows (1, 4, and 7 p.m.) scheduled to take place in DP’s Celebrity Theater. Rock the Smokies features great Christian artists throughout the park, with headliners Casting Crowns and Mac Powell from Third Day in Celebrity Theater.
Grammy and Dove Award-winning Casting Crowns will play a number of their hit songs, including music from their The Very Next Thing Tour. Third Day founder Mac Powell performs some of his independent projects prior to Casting Crowns. The Casting Crowns/Mac Powell concerts on the main stage are separately ticketed. Jordan Feliz, Ryan Stevenson, Micah Tyler and Jimi Cravity will be performing on stages throughout the park during the event.
The best part? Not only do you get the amazing shows, you get to enjoy all the fun of Dollywood. There are discounts available for larger groups, so it is the perfect end-of-summer activity for youth ministries, church groups and more. All of the featured acts change from season to season, so it really is a completely new experience each year.
