Dollywood and TVA: Have Fun & Learn Lots!
TVA is Dollywood's official education partner. Visit the park, have a blast and learn stuff, too.
TVA is proud to be the education partner to Dollywood and its newest addition, Wildwood Grove. We hope to use the partnership to educate the more than 2 million annual visitors to the park about TVA and the benefits that come from the public power model.
Through educational signs tied to online learning modules, we are integrating STEM education information into experiences you can enjoy before or after a Dollywood visit. They explain how we manage public lands and waters for the greatest benefit to the residents in our service area, and how we work to protect the natural and cultural resources in the Tennessee River watershed. You can also learn how we (and you!) can generate natural, carbon-free power.
If you’re a customer of one of the 154 local power companies that distribute TVA power, you qualify for a discount on tickets to Dollywood. Visit your power company’s web site for more information about the discount and to order tickets — or click here, and we’ll help you get to them.
