The holiday season is here and there is no better place to celebrate this wonderful time of year than at Dollywood’s Smoky Mountain Christmas! This fun event is sure to get you into the holiday spirit with four million sparkling Christmas lights, beloved characters from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and a spectacular lineup of live Christmas shows! Here are 5 holiday shows that you have to see while attending the Smoky Mountain Christmas at Dollywood:
1. It’s a Wonderful Life
The premier show at the Smoky Mountain Christmas at Dollywood is the Christmas classic It’s a Wonderful Life. This timeless holiday story of love and generosity is the newest addition to Dollywood’s Christmas season show lineup and takes place in the Showplace Theater. While all shows are included with your admission to Dollywood, they are very popular so we recommend getting to each theater at least 30 minutes early to get a good seat!
2. Christmas in the Smokies
One of Dollywood’s greatest Christmas traditions continues with Christmas in the Smokies, a performance of hometown holiday favorites from a 14 member cast. Sing along as the talented cast of singers and dancers perform Christmas classics while accompanied by a band of eight live musicians! This show is the perfect way to celebrate the joy of the season and takes place at the Celebrity Theater.
3. Christmas with the Kingdom Heirs
Celebrate a Southern Gospel Christmas with the Kingdom Heirs as they perform your favorite Christmas hymns and songs! This uplifting show in the Pines Theater is guaranteed to fill your heart with joy and the true spirit of the holidays. When attending the Smoky Mountain Christmas at Dollywood, remember to pick up a show schedule at the park entrance to find out the performance times for Christmas with the Kingdom Heirs and other showtimes!
Be sure to stop by the Showstreet Gazebo throughout your day at Dollywood to listen to the MistleTones, a four women a cappella group performing traditional Christmas songs. If you think you have heard every rendition of your Christmas favorites, check out how the group puts a new twist on these holiday classics!
5. O’ Holy Night
The entire family will enjoy O’Holy Night, a heart warming show where a young girl looks for an angel while three shepherds follow a star.
