Summer is just around the corner, and with it comes a myriad of different theme park events. One of the most popular events takes place in Pigeon Forge, TN – the home of Dolly Parton’s Dollywood Theme Park. The park has much to offer, including many thrilling roller coaster rides, local arts and crafts, and music straight from the Smoky Mountains region.

KidsFest is the largest children’s festival in the south, and we are looking forward to serving and meeting the many Dollywood visitors that attend the event each year.
Of course, KidsFest focuses on the kids, and returning to the festival is last year's Journey to the Center of the Earth, a four-dimensional theater that’s based on the film starring Brandon Fraser. In addition, there’s also a new "Silly Science Fair" children's activity center that will be open through July 23.
Also part of this year’s festival is Dolly's Imagination Playhouse, featuring the Penguin Players. This year's performances are based on "The Little Engine That Could," "Llama Llama Red Pajama" and the Skippyjon Jones series. The productions also feature music composed by Dolly Parton herself!
You can also see various “roaming characters” at the festival, including legendary outdoorsman Cas and his trusted companion Walker, the blue tick hound; Trapper and his lifelong companion Baxter Bear; and Patches the Scarecrow, who sneaked away from the Piggy Parade ride and is now strolling through Dollywood with his friends Piggy and Miss Penny.
