Dollywood expands its harvest festival and features a new Native American village

A special living showcase of a Native American village anchors the newly-expanded Dollywood Harvest Celebration. The multi-faceted five-week event shined the spotlight on traditional crafts, music and foods of the Great Smoky Mountains. Dolly said,

“Our Harvest Celebration is all about our music, our handiwork and, of course, good food. It gives our guests a chance to experience some of the Smoky Mountains’ most time-honored traditions and reminisce about a time when life was just simpler.”

The Native American village featured replicas of both a Cherokee summer and winter home. It also featured demonstrations of primitive skills, craftsmanship, music, food, storytelling and culture. Guests viewed authentic Native American regalia and enjoyed presentations of native dances.
