Dollywood's Festival of Nations presented by Humana displays the most captivating entertainment from around the world during this month-long celebration of music, dance, food and art.
Some of the entertainment expected this year at this wonderful event:
After a wildly successful Festival of Nations in 2014, Mother Africa returns to Dollywood with an all-new show which takes guests to “Khayelitsha,” one of the largest townships in South Africa. The world-renowned show combines skillful acrobatics, live music and traditional and modern dance to delight audiences through a fascinating celebration of Africa’s diverse traditions.
Los Pampas Gauchos
Los Pampas Gauchos is an exciting, fast-paced show which blends the traditional folk dancing of Argentina with the
thrill of modern showmanship and comedy. This unique and entertaining show paints a vibrant visual of this fascinating culture.
Led by Cape Breton Island musical ambassador and award-winning singer/songwriter Buddy MacDonald, Celtic Coast features original music and traditional tunes inspired by the diverse musical heritage of Nova Scotia, Canada. Joining MacDonald are Rachel Davis on fiddle, and multi-instrumentalist Darren McMullen, two of Cape Breton’s brightest young talents.
The United Kingdom Ukulele Orchestra
This unique ensemble plays a variety of world music, all arranged for the ukulele. Their professional musical talents on the ukulele, along with their hilarious antics, make this show unlike anything else. Hailing from locations around the United Kingdom, this group brings an all-new experience to Dollywood’s Festival of Nations. Combining British comedy with the traditional Hawaiian instrument, The United Kingdom Ukulele Orchestra breaks down musical borders!
