Obviously, food is a huge part of our Flower & Food Festival. Curious about what’s on the menu? This is a brand-new festival with never-before-offered cuisine. You can choose from appetizers, entrees, drinks and dessert. I’ll list all festival dining items for you by location.
Flower & Food Festival Cookies- Dollywood’s shortbread cookies are each custom-cut and decorated by our own pastry chefs. The recipe is simple, but the designs are intricate.
Spring Blooms Cupcakes- Which spring flower will you choose? The designs are each unique, but you can count on the cupcakes to be rich vanilla with buttercream icing!
Showstreet Snacks (booth just beyond Sweet Shoppe and Candy Kitchen)
Strawberries and Cream- Fresh strawberries are thickly-sliced and macerated by sugar. They are presented to you in layers of homemade whipped cream.
Belgian Waffle (Nutella)- This Liège waffle is considered Belgium’s superior waffle because the batter is made with brioche yeast dough and studded with pearl sugar. That sugar holds its shape as the waffles bake, leaving you with glorious, crunchy bites. This waffle is topped with Nutella.
Belgian Waffle (Lemon Curd and Blueberries)- Filled with clusters of caramelized pearl sugar, this Liège waffle is light and crispy. Top it with lemon curd and blueberries for a sweet and tart treat.
Strawberry Hibiscus Refresher- Sip the essence of the season. Dollywood’s Strawberry Hibiscus will become one of your favorite ways to enjoy your visit. Something to consider when thinking of things to do this summer.

Citrus Shrimp- A citrus glaze flavors our grilled shrimp. The shrimp is skewered and served over rice seasoned with turmeric and cilantro and mixed with peas.
Chocolate-Dipped Coconut Macaroon- Is it the chocolate drizzle, the chocolate-dipped bottom or the rich, chocolate center that is going to have you asking for seconds? Buy one for now and get another [few] to go!
Strawberry Guava Quencher- Like the fruit itself, the subtle beauty of our Strawberry Guava Quencher is alluring. While it quenches your thirst, you’ll want another cup.

Caramelized Brussels Sprouts- Dollywood’s Brussels sprouts are easy to enjoy as they are flavorfully tossed with caramelized onions. Though sautéed and tender, there’s still a slight crunch. It’s a hearty and healthy side that’s good enough to be the star of the menu.
Toasted Coconut Cupcake- Simplicity at its tastiest: moist and rich vanilla cake with buttercream icing and topped with toasted coconut shreds. *Available at both Market Square Steak and Market Square Sausage
