"A Great way to End the Day"
August, 2016
We had wonderful evening. Our seats were excellent to see the entire show. The girls, age 10, loved the trick riding and laughed at the chicken chases and pig races. They waved their flags and were thrilled to have them signed after the show. It is great on this day and age to enjoy a truly family show!
Tip: It was great to book early and come early to the show.

Our group of eight went to the Dixie stampede and loved it! The pre-show was entertaining and fun listening to the bands bluegrass and Christmas music. "Biscuit" the banjo player is a hoot! The stampede was awesome! The integration of a rodeo and the story of the birth of Jesus was tastefully executed. A wonderful show and dinner. The food is abundant and the staff overly friendly. Highly recommend this as a family fun event.

We went to the Christmas show and we had a blast. I have been dying to go to Dixie stampede since I was 16 (now 27) and it was everything I've dreamed of. The horses were magnificent and obviously taken care of and treated very well. The stunts were great, the staff very very kind... everyone had a smile on their face. The food was more than you could eat and delicious at that. This is well worth the cost of the tickets. My only complaint was I thought we could maybe get a little more interaction with the horses before the show. They're behind a chained off section of the sidewalk that keeps you at a pretty good distance. For being a horse rider myself, I was disappointed but I understand it's likely a liability thing. This is a must see show!!!!
