Dumplin Valley Bluegrass Festival 2022

One of the best and friendliest bluegrass festivals happens September 15-17, 2022, just a few miles north of Pigeon Forge, at Dumplin Valley Farm, a great venue featuring a stellar lineup of talent, late-night jams, wonderful food and a family-friendly atmosphere filled with music all day long. The festival is relaxed, authentic, unpretentious and absolute top of the line.

The Dumplin Valley Bluegrass Festival, 2022 is the 22nd annual occurrence of this low-key event that many people book an RV or camping spot a year in advance for. Day visitors and walk-ins are welcomed, with tickets at the gate, while many people fill the campground surrounding the farm and settle in for the three days or more. Many also bring their own instruments, and music fills the air, wherever you are.

Shades of the Past 2022: The Last Roundup

In 2022, the annual Hot Rod Roundup in Dollywood’s Splash country makes its final appearance in Pigeon Forge and will continue elsewhere in the future. The Shades of the Past contract with Dollywood ends in this year and can’t be renewed. The organizers say there’s no equivalent location in the area that can hold this large-scale event, so this is the last roundup for this long-standing Pigeon Forge event.
