New Food, Festivals and Fun Arriving at Silver Dollar City in 2017

Silver Dollar City has announced their planned changes for the park's 2017 season, centered around a robust series of festivals and family fun.  Coined "the year of food and crafts," visitors will find more of what they already love about the park including 200 new signature food items and plenty of expanded craft offerings.

In the Spring the park will hold The Festival of Wonder for the first time, featuring unique acts such as the world's longest playable stringed instrument and the acrobatic performances of the Flamenco Kings.  Along with the new shows will be plenty of unique food offerings, giving visitors another reason to visit the park.

Other changes to festivals and live entertainment include a new Summer Concert Series, and celebrity performances during the popular Bluegrass & BBQ Festival.  During the summer, Moonlight Madness will be paired with a Summer Festival filled with special events for kids.

Also announced is a large expansion to the park's An Old Time Christmas celebration, featuring a new Christmas In Midtown section.  The addition will see 1.5 million new lights go up at the park, bringing the total to an impressive 6.5 million.

Even with all these changes the park has even more in store for 2017, and is already hard at work at what seems like a thrilling addition for 2018.  Stay tuned!
