If you love bluegrass and barbeque, then goodness gracious are you in for a treat! The 2018 Dollywood Barbeque and Bluegrass festival takes place May 25 – June 10 and offers the best of both worlds with some incredible bluegrass performances and tasty, delicious BBQ. Some of the bluegrass performers include Flatt Lonesome, Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, Dailey & Vincent, Blue Highway, Darin & Brooke Aldrige, Joe Mullins & The Radio Ramblers, Lonesome River Band, Molly Tuttle, Rhonda Vincent and The Rage, Russell Moore & III’rd Tyme Out, The Grascals, and so many more! You can find the full list of performers and schedule below for each bluegrass group along with when and where they’ll be performing on Dollywood’s official page.
Whether you spell it “BBQ”, “barbeque”, or “barbecue”, you’re talking about finger-lickin’ goodness! During Dollywood’s Bluegrass and Barbecue Festival, you’ll find some incredible & fresh BBQ chicken and pork throughout the park. The absolute best place, though, is in Market Square (where the large fountain was located up until this year) where numerous grills are setup and grilling the freshest barbecue in town! They typically offer a sample platter, which is what we suggest to give you the best taste of everything they have to offer. It’s absolutely delicious and something we look forward to every year!
