Dollywood's Stage Shows Feature American Cultute. Dollywood features classic American entertainment celebrating the music and people of the Great Smoky Mountains in a family-friendly atmosphere. 
 
Here's the scoop. Dollywood’s "Imaginé" is described as “an amazing visual feast” of “mesmerizing acrobatic theatre.” A premier cast of world-champion acrobats and performers from 15 countries presents acts including pole climbing, contortionists, hoop diving, unicyclists, silk ropes, the diablo, and much more. Imaginé showcases athletic ability, lavish costumes, dynamic lighting and vibrant music. 
 Dollywood  Sha Kon O Hey
Sha-Kon-O-Hey! incorporates scenic elements and stage effects never before seen at Dollywood. Parton wrote the eight songs featured in the new show which captures the spirit of the mountains and the rich heritage of the people who call them home as it takes audiences back to a time of great change in the Smoky Mountains in 1930s. “Sha-Kon-O-Hey” is the phonetic spelling of “Shaconage,” the Cherokee word which means “land of the blue smoke.”
 
In this elaborate musical journey, a wizened storyteller guides a reluctant family as they bid farewell to the area that eventually becomes Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Along the way, audiences meet the folks who inhabited this great land—the settlers, the rail and lumbermen, the Native Americans and the shiners. The show, performed in DP’s Celebrity, is included with park admission and continues with multiple performances daily.

Parton recorded all eight songs on a new commemorative CD entitled Sha-Kon-O-Hey! Available at Dollywood, Dollywood’s Splash Country water park, Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede and Dinner Attraction, and GSMNP Visitor Center, the CD is $10 plus tax. Parton is donating $8 from each sale to Friends of the Smokies, a non-profit organization devoted to preserving and protecting the Great Smoky Mountains National Park by raising funds and public awareness. Anyone interested in supporting Friends of the Smokies through the sale of CDs should contact Steve Williams at (865) 428-8735.

Dollywood hosts four of the South’s largest festivals, including the summertime KidsFest (June to August), Festival of Nations (March/April ), National Gospel & Harvest Celebration (October), and Smoky Mountain Christmas (November to January) all presented by Humana.   243PFDollywoodFamily
