Silver Dollar City (SDC) today announced a number of new attractions and experiences debuting throughout the 2019 operating season.
Most significant is an overhaul of the fall festival with the addition of “Pumpkin Nights” and extended operating hours until 9 p.m. The evening-time illumination event will feature thousands of pumpkin creations and larger-than-life autumn-inspired icons like scarecrows, cats, owls, and more. A new “Pumpkin Pathway” will lead to “Pumpkin Plaza” with a dance party and fall activities.
The pumpkin glow concept is a nod to the success of Dollywood — SDC’s sister park in Pigeon Forge, Tenn. — and their “Great Pumpkin LumiNights” event.
SDC will continue to welcome visiting artisans during the fall festival, with select new crafters appearing each week amidst a setting filled with colorful pumpkins. A new high-energy French-Canadian acrobatic musical stage show about singing and dancing lumberjacks will also debut.
Also announced today is the 2019 theme: “The Year of Shows & Festivals.” In the spring, fans will enjoy a number of show options during the Festival of Wonder, including the new CirqUnique show and Phoenix Fire, a black-light, laser, and fire production.
For the summer, look for the debut of “Reuben’s Swashbuckling Adventure.” This original $1 million Broadway-style musical features a colorful cast, flying characters, state-of-the-art sets, and other special effects. Also new for summer is Kid Magic, starring Kadan Bart Rockett & Brooklyn from America’s Got Talent.
During the late-summer Bluegrass & BBQ festival, the new “Bluegrass Nights” series will feature nightly concerts with top bluegrass artists in the outdoor Echo Hollow Amphitheatre. In September, Country Music Days will present 13 back-to-back days of iconic country music and classic country stars performing at Saturday Night Celebrity Concerts.
SDC’s “An Old Time Christmas” festival will return in November and December featuring over 6.5 million lights, Broadway-style musical productions, Rudolph’s Holly Jolly Christmas Light Parade, thousands of decorated Christmas trees, holiday comfort foods, and so much more.
