Behind the Blooms of Dollywood’s Flower and Food Festival

Editor’s Note: This post was put together by Camryn Eaton, Dollywood Parks and Resorts Public Relations Intern.

To give you a better glimpse into the beauty of this year’s Flower & Food Festival presented by Covenant Health (open through June 5), we spoke with Dollywood’s Grounds Manager Bobby Johnson. This festival requires special attention and care from the Landscaping team in order to maintain nearly one million blooms throughout the park. In 2021, this event won the IAAPA Brass Ring Award for “Best New Food and Beverage Festival or Special Event.”

As the weather warms up and blooms abound, the Flower & Food Festival provides an unforgettable experience for all guests at Dollywood.
