Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort and Spa is celebrating the Flower & Food Festival presented by Covenant Health with its own beautiful blooms and delicious treats this spring, and I could not be any more excited! Staying at the resort is always a treat, but this year during the festival, they are really stepping it up to create a truly immersive experience that compliments what is going on at the park. When you stay at the resort, you will enjoy a variety of festival foods, activities and décor during your stay starting the first day of the Flower & Food Festival, Friday, April 23 until the festival ends on Monday, June 7.
Colorful Camp DW Activities and Entertainment
Every day during the festival, you can enjoy the drink of the day. These delicious, family-friendly beverages called Agua Frescas are served by Camp DW Hosts from 4-6 p.m. in the lobby. Each drink will be served with a recipe card allowing you and your family to recreate the special beverage and memories at home. Camp DW also offers a variety of family activities each day such as paint your own flower pot, design a birdhouse and instructional canvas painting.

Renewing Spring Treatments in The Spa
In The Spa, you can enjoy special treatments infused with lavender, honey, pomegranate, blackberry and other spring-fresh ingredients. Many flowers and foods have incredible benefits when applied to the skin because of their anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties. For the Flower & Food Festival experience, you can choose from treatments that smell good enough to eat, including the Guac N’ Roll Toning & Tightening Facial that features FarmHouse Fresh’s Guac Star face mask. This deliciously-luxurious face mask is made with real avocado butter, extract and oil that calms and cools the skin. These carefully-created services provide relaxing moments during your fun-filled Flower & Food Festival experience.
