It has been decided by the soothsaying groundhog that Spring shall come early this year, so that’s the official go ahead to start planning for Spring Break in the Smokies! In this little mini-series, Chalet Village would like to highlight ideas for how to spend Spring in the Smokies with attractions and events that are very convenient to our vacation cabins and chalets in Chalet Village.
Dollywood in nearby Pigeon Forge has made a tradition out of opening its operating season each year with their incredibly popular and unique “Festival of the Nations”, a huge celebration of worldly cultures where Dollywood offers their theaters, streets and decor to showcase a number of nations most of us might not get to visit in our lifetimes with shows, performances, acrobatics, vending stations, foods and more. Chalet Village has been a fan and supporter of Dollywood’s Festival of Nations for many years and we have quite a few family-sized cabins in Gatlinburg that would offer many luxury amenities during a family’s Spring Break vacation.
Here’s what Mypigeonforge.com writes about Festival of the Nations this year:
Dollywood welcomes the world during Festival of Nations, a fascinating multi-cultural celebration featuring traditional music, dance, food and art of nations from around the globe. Festival of Nations reminds guests of shared similarities while embracing unique, time-honored traditions.
Major touring stage shows, internationally-known performance groups, various roaming musicians and more make Dollywood’s Festival of Nations a fun, educational and exciting experience for your family. Authentic international cuisine and the daily celebrations by visiting nations throughout the Dollywood park provide guests with an escape around the world without leaving the heart of the Smokies.
