Feel the beat at Dollywood’s Festival of Nations scheduled March 16, – April 14, 2019.  Entertainers from several countries will perform on stages in the massive theme park located in Dolly’s home Sevier County. In addition talented chefs, including Cuban celebrity Chef Pepin, will prepare international dishes each weekend during Festival of Nations.

Dollywood’s Celebrity Theater

Movin to the groovin has never been easier as Lizt Alfonso Dance Cuba and her Havana based company demonstrates the art of Cuban music and dance dating from the 1950s to modern times. And, on stage, big band pounds out the rhythm as 18 dancers, several which have performed together for some 25 years, perform lively fusion-style dances that blend Hispanic and Caribbean cultures. Groove to the Latin beat and maybe even shake your own tail feathers during this vibrant performance.

Drumstruck is a performance that might be just the thing to help channel your inner percussionist.  Billed as the first interactive drum-theatre experience, the beat goes on as Drumstruck pounds out ancient, eerie rhythms that echo the heart of the Dark Continent. Be sure and check out the attached sneak preview video below of these amazing musicians!

 

Show Street Gazebo

Ecuador-based Atahualpa uses native Incan instruments to celebrate the culture of the Andes. Atahualpa’s combination of traditional, contemporary music along with South American dance music is guaranteed to get the audience on their feet. Through music, Atahualpa hopes to promote peace and brotherhood to the entire world.

Valley Theater

Invaders Steel Orchestra, celebrating 75 years of entertainment, brings a Caribbean flair to the Great Smoky Mountains as they create music from unique steel drums. The orchestra, a proven crowd favorite at past festivals, features high energy tunes and rhythmic melodies that are guaranteed to entertain.

Back Porch Theater

Quebec based De Temps Antan offers songs featuring a hint of the contemporary combined with traditional couplets as the trio regales the audience with stories and French-Canadian tunes. Come join our Northern neighbors in a rousing evening of entertainment March 16 -25.
