Coming as no surprise, Dollywood has prospered throughout the years and just celebrated it’s 30th birthday.  All thanks are due to our very own, Sevierville native—Dolly Parton.

Being our hometown girl, she has a true rags-to-riches story of overcoming the odds and yet has always given back to our community. 

Her Cinderella story has touched the hearts of those around the country and continues to do so as she marches forward spreading her good work.

One of her top songs, “Coat of Many Colors,” was fashioned after her own childhood, which was full of hardships and clothes that she had to mend together from scraps.

While many have fallen in love with this American icon from her countless songs that have reached the top Billboard charts, she has brought millions throughout our doors and helped the economy of Pigeon Forge and the Great Smoky Mountains thrive for many years.  

Through her involvement in Dollywood, the Dixie Stampede, Dollywood’s Splash Country, Imagination Library, The Dr. Robert F. Thomas Foundation and many more foundations and attractions, she has helped make the Smokies what they are today.  

The Dollywood Company has even announced that they will have $300 million worth of investments over the next 10 years, which will undoubtedly keeping boosting our economy here in the Smokies.

We thank Dolly and love her for all her amazing contributions.  

Also, we cannot wait to see what she has coming next in the future in the place we call home

Laughing until we had tears. I’ve never seen anything like the look on my kids’ faces when we drove down the Parkway past Pigeon Forge attractions. Our hotel was so vibrant and the staff was upbeat and helpful. Pigeon Forge is the brightest spot in the Smoky Mountains. The high energy (and clean language) shows we saw in theaters had everyone in my family clapping their hands…even “sour” Uncle George.
