Fall is a magnificent time here in the Smokies. The leaves change colors, the air is crisp and the smell of pumpkin fills the air. To immerse resort guests in the splendor of a Smoky Mountain autumn, Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort and Spa is celebrating Dollywood’s Harvest Festival with fall foods, décor, activities and more.
Throughout the duration of the Harvest Festival, you can enjoy the Harvest Refreshment of the Moment including Pumpkin Punch, Pomegranate and Citrus Mocktail, and Autumn Harvest Punch. These delicious, family-friendly beverages are served by our Camp DW Hosts from 4-6 p.m. in the lobby and come with a recipe card allowing you to recreate the special beverage and memories at home. Camp DW offers a variety of harvest-themed take-away crafts including DIY patchwork pumpkins, foam pumpkin painting, seasonal vintage wooden trucks, canvas painting and more. Camp DW also hosts nightly s’mores and bedtime stories, which features fall-themed children’s books from Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.
Camp DW Activities During Harvest Include:
- Bedtime Stories in The Barn every night at 8 p.m.
- S’mores roasting around the wood-burning fire pit every night at 7 p.m.
- Pumpkin carving demonstrations in The Barn every Tuesday that Dollywood is closed
- Giant Connect 4, Jenga Dominoes, Cornhole and other outdoor games available all day
- Outdoor family movie nights in The Barn every weekend at 8:30 p.m.
- Themed craft afternoon hosted by Camp DW Hosts.
Guest can enjoy live entertainment by featured Harvest Festival performers in the resort’s atrium throughout the festival, including performances by The Young Fables, The Woods, Billy and Cruz Contreras, the High Beams, and Kate and Corey. Daily roaming performers also can be found around the resort.
In The Spa, you can relax with special treatments infused with fall scents and ingredients. For Dollywood’s Harvest Festival, you can choose from treatments that are reminiscent of harvest in the Smoky Mountains such as the honey chai massage or luminous pumpkin facial. Choose from three harvest-inspired manicure and pedicure combinations – campfire, mint, and perky pumpkin – before completing their service by adding a sweet apple cider back polish or big bear polish foot scrub.
Harvest Festival décor brings vibrant, fall colors to the already beautiful resort. An autumn pumpkin display greets you as you enter the resort, while orange, gold and crimson wreaths and flower arrangements adorn tables, doors, the truck by the barn and other areas of the resort.
