Like many of you, the Flower & Food Festival at Dollywood is becoming one of my favorite times to visit the park. Not only can I eat my weight in all of the delicious food, but the Flower & Food Festival has some of the most incredible photo spots, which makes this photographer swoon! Here are a few of my must- stop spots to grab the perfect photo!
No Dollywood trip is complete without a picture in front of the Dollywood sign! Each season, the Dollywood hosts make sure that every detail is in place and the Dollywood sign is never left undone. During the Flower & Food Festival, the Dollywood sign greets all of the guests in springtime fashion with flower-filled decorations that will surely put you in a spring time mood!
If you’re all about getting that perfect Instagram pic, Umbrella Sky along Showstreet is a must! Hundreds of umbrellas fill the sky with a pastel perfect backdrop that will liven up any Instagram feed. You can have a Dollywood photographer take your picture or ask them to take your picture with your camera or phone. Either way, this is a must-stop picture opportunity!
The flowers do come to life during the Flower & Food, and the larger-than-life sculptures prove this! As you make your way down Showstreet to Market Square, be sure to grab a photo in front of the whimsical upside-down umbrella and the Coat of Many Colors display that pays tribute to Dolly’s mother.
Another great picture spot is the mama bear and her cubs in Rivertown Junction. These playful bears give you a sense of the nature life and will add all the Smokey Mountain feels to your pictures. There are many more blooming wildlife sculptures in Rivertown Junction, so be sure to check those out, too.
With the warmer weather upon us, the Flower & Food Festival is the perfect time to visit Dollywood. So, come with an empty belly and leave with a camera full of exquisite photos that you’ll enjoy forever!
