Harvest Festival Scavenger Hunt

Whether you’re a veteran Dollywood Season Passholder or a newbie visiting the park’s Harvest Festival for the first time, there’s no better way to get acquainted with the sights than by completing a scavenger hunt! This hunt has a variety of clues to find pumpkins decorating this year’s fall event. Some clues will be easy enough for the little scavengers in your family to find, and some will be more challenging. All clues are labeled by location and can be found during the day or in the evening during Great Pumpkin LumiNights. You can complete this hunt by taking a screenshot of the clues on your phone or downloading and printing the PDF version before you come out to the park.

Happy Hunting! Be sure to take pictures of your scavenging adventures and post your finds using #DollywoodHarvest and #Dollywood2021.

Rachel DeAngelis (Dollywood Insider 2021-Now) was born in Central Florida and grew up with an array of popular theme parks right in her backyard. However, for the last seven years she has been enjoying the quiet life in East Tennessee, falling in love with the Smoky Mountains, the beauty of the four seasons and the amazing legacy of Dolly Parton. She and her two boys (ages 7 and 5) spend as much time as they can at Dollywood, especially in the summer months. You’ll typically find them cruising around the Rockin’ Roadway, eating Dippin’ Dots and taking in shows at the Little Engine Playhouse. Rachel is a high school English teacher at Concord Christian School, and she’s also a contributor for Knoxville Moms. She’s so excited to have the opportunity to combine her passion for writing with her love of all things Dolly!
