PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (WVLT/WYMT) - Dollywood’s 2nd Annual Flower and Food Festival kicks off on April 23rd. The park is filled with food, flowers, and music.

There are more than 500,000 flowers across the park. There are about a dozen blooming sculptures across the park. The sculptures are inspired by the beauty of The Smoky Mountains.

1-day passes to the park are $79 for adults. Park officials recommend purchasing your tickets before heading to the park. They are currently limiting capacity.

This year you can purchase a Flower and Food Festival Dining Pass for five entrees. There are some featured signature food items including a fresh berry lavender funnel cake, plantain chips with mango salsa, fruit-infused refreshers, a lobster roll, and bakery items shaped like flowers.

Musical acts will switch up throughout the festival. They will feature contemporary Christian and Southern Gospel artists.

The festival ends on June 7th.
