Celebrate American Eagle Day at Dollywood!
The American Eagle Foundation (AEF) will celebrate American Eagle Day Saturday, June 16, at Dollywood, and we hope you will join us there to commemorate the anniversary of the selection of the Bald Eagle as our National Symbol and to recognize the Bald Eagle’s physical recovery to America’s skies.
American Eagle Day was first recognized in 1995 by President Bill Clinton and Tennessee Governor Don Sundquist. To date, governors from 49 states have signed proclamations naming June 20 as American Eagle Day.
Until American Eagle Day was established, there had never been a “national day” set aside to annually recognize our country’s inspirational national bird and the role that it has played in our lives, past and present. Together, we can make June 20th an annual day to remember and commemorate this majestic and important American symbol.
SCHEDULE OF EVENTS
In addition to the normally-scheduled Wings of America Bird of Prey show, the day’s activities include special events at 1:30 p.m.
- A special performance by singer and song writer James Rogers
- An exclusive meet-and-greet with free-flying Bald Eagle Challenger
- A visit with John Stokes & Bald Eagle Osceola
Visitors to Dollywood are invited to join our AEF staff from 10:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m. to learn more about American Eagle Day and the comeback of the Bald Eagle.
