If you love bluegrass and barbeque, then goodness gracious are you in for a treat! The 2020 Dollywood Barbeque and Bluegrass festival was scheduled to take place April 24 – May 3 but has possibly been cancelled due to the safety measures around COVID-19. Some of the bluegrass performers include Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, Dailey & Vincent, Joe Mullins & The Radio Ramblers, Rhonda Vincent and The Rage, The Cleverlys, The Appalachian Road Show, 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!
