Join Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede Dinner Attraction in Pigeon Forge, TN for a family feast and fantastic show fun for all ages. The 28th season of Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede is THE most exciting and unique yet, as all-new sights and sounds create an atmosphere unlike any other.
Dixie Stampede offers two shows in one – a one-of-a-kind Dixie Belle Saloon pre-show and a full-scale arena spectacular with a talented cast of performers, costumed servers, singing and dancing, trick riding with an impressive stable of 32 horses, and the spectacular “Roman Ride of Fire!” Guests are expected to bring a hearty appetite with them as they will be served Dixie Stampede’s traditional four-course feast.
Innovative new lighting technology brings the main arena backdrop to life and features a stunning tribute to the Great Smoky Mountains. The 2015 season also features a new musical score and aerial act, along with new state-of-the-art theatrical lighting and sound systems, marking the largest upgrade and investment in the show since its opening in 1988.
Please arrive an hour before show time to stroll the beautiful horsewalk, and enjoy the side-splitting comedy and bluegrass and country music of Dixie Stampede’s house band in the Dixie Belle Saloon pre-show.
The Dixie Stampede Dinner includes:
This was probably the most memorable dinner show experiences my wife and I have ever had! The food was great southern food. Chicken, potatoes etc all eaten with just your hands. Our waitress was also very attentive and did a wondrful job. The show was very entertaining! The cast all did an awesome job. We were lucky enough to be chosen to be apart of the show to do the "Stick horse" race! Overall an excellent experience! We will definitely be going again. If you enjoy any of the fallowing: dinner shows, horse riding stunts, or southern food I encourage you to try it! Well worth the money.
We have been to the Dixie stampede twice! Our girls LOVED IT (ages 12 and 15) We LOVED IT! We went one time for our trip then decided to bring the girls to the Christmas show! Worth every single penny and more! Be sure to bring cash for the tip!!! We will be back!
I would recommend this to everyone, all ages will enjoy this show. Food was great, espeically the hot dessert, the servers were also excellent, and very friendly. The show was excellent as well. No complaints from us.
This is an absolute must-do when we're in Pigeon Forge. There are a ton of dinner shows in the city and I've been to all of them at some point, but this one still reigns supreme. Dixie Stampede underwent a $2.5 million dollar renovation earlier this year and has a whole new set. The show is better than ever so even if you've been before, it's definitely worth returning now.
