Ridge upon ridge of forest straddles the border between North Carolina and Tennessee in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. World renowned for its diversity of plant and animal life, the beauty of its ancient mountains, and the quality of its remnants of Southern Appalachian mountain culture, this is America’s most visited national park.

In addition to being the only 5-time National Banjo Champion, Biscuit has traveled the world performing with incredible artists, including one of the biggest names ever in music, Dolly Parton. Not only did Biscuit perform with Dolly, but he was also her band leader for many years and produced tracks for her on multiple albums. Biscuit is one of the most talented and entertaining individuals you will ever meet, as well as being an incredible storyteller. You will enjoy every second spent with Biscuit.
The rest of of the afternoon is spent at Dollywood Theme Park. Like its namesake Dolly Parton, it delivers great live entertainment on multiple stages. It is filled with craft shops where you’ll find live demonstrations by Master Craftsmen. Ride the train, see an American Eagle habitat, Roller Coasters and rides, a Dolly Museum and more.
Dollywood’s Harvest Festival presented by Humana is even more spectacular this season, with thousands of carved and illuminated jack-o-lanterns immersing families in fabulous fall fun. The largest addition ever made to Dollywood’s fall festival, Great Pumpkin LumiNights features artistic sculptures, whimsical scenes and delightful, family-friendly fun throughout Timber Canyon.
