Silver Dollar City Event: Southern Gospel Picnic Days
When you visit Silver Dollar City between August 27 and September 7 this year, you can experience the magic and excitement of Southern Gospel Picnic Days. This engaging festival adds to the normal excitement of Silver Dollar City's thrill rides, kiddie rides, and regular live entertainment. Take a break from the 230-degree turns of the seven story tall Giant Swing, the high speed loop-de-loops of the WildFire Coast, the shotgun catapult of the PowderKeg for great southern style food and memorable gospel performances.
During the day hours Silver Dollar City will be lifted up by the sweet sounds of gospel music on several stages throughout the park. Altogether, the park will host over a hundred live performances by celebrated gospel performers during the Southern Gospel Picnic Days. During the evening hours, you can sit back and relax at the Echo Hollow Amphitheatre for memorable gospel performances under the evening stars. Just a few of the performers scheduled to appear during the festival are Karen Peck and New River, Soul'd Out Quartet, Austins Bridge, Roy Webb, the Diplomats, the Kingsmen Quartet, the Dixie Melody Boys with Mark Bishop, the Mark Trammell Trio, the Perrys, Jeff and Sheri Easter — 2009 Dove Award Winners, and so many more.
The Southern Gospel Picnic Days also brings delicious southern-style food to Silver Dollar City. The Picnic Wagon will be set up on the City's square to provide you with fried chicken, barbecue chicken, smoked chicken, roasted apple glazed chicken, and a number of other styles of chicken along with all of your family's favorite sides.
On Sunday, September 9 at both 9:30am and 11am, worship through gospel music and the words of Dr. Dennis Swanberg. The worship service will be held in the Red Gold Heritage Hall in Silver Dollar City. After the worship service, you'll be in the ideal spot to continue with a great day of family fun, good food, and gospel music.
Your ticket to Silver Dollar City grants you admission to the festival. However, seating at the 4,000 seat Echo Hollow Amphitheater is limited. The gate to the amphitheater opens two hours before the show time, so please plan to arrive early to get your seats.
