*NOTE–the content below refers to the 2016 season of Dollywood’s Festival of Nations. I offer it here to give an idea of what to expect if you should go. To see my initial post about the performance part of the festival, go here.
Dollywood’s Festival of Nations offers a fair amount of unique shopping opportunities if you care to take advantage of them. Booths with authentic merchandise from numerous countries line either side of Showstreet down to Marketplace Square and are worth a look for items ranging from small trinkets to expensive art. If I weren’t trying to get rid of everything I own, I probably would have made it home with a small nativity or two. Below are some of the items for sale during the 2016 season.
