Description

from Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede Dinner Attraction
Join Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede Dinner Attraction in Pigeon Forge, TN for a family feast and fantastic show fun for all ages. Celebrating 30 years of providing quality family entertainment.

Back by popular demand, the impressive Longhorns make an appearance during the show as the pioneering settlers move west in search of new lands. For most guests, this is the closest they will come to these magnificent animals.

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.

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:
  • Whole Rotisserie Chicken

  • Hickory Smoked Barbecued Pork Loin

  • Dixie's Original Creamy Vegetable Soup

  • Scrumptious Homemade Biscuit

  • Hot Buttered Corn on the Cob

  • Tasty Herb-basted Potato

  • Dixie's very own Specialty Dessert

  • Unlimited Pepsi, tea or coffee


In November and December, the Dixie Stampede transforms into a holiday celebration including a live Nativity, with three kings atop camels, holiday music, a visit from Santa and a four-course yuletide feast.

Dixie Stampede Dinner Attractions operate in two popular vacation destinations: Pigeon Forge, Tennessee and Branson, Missouri. They also operate Dolly Parton’s Smoky Mountain Adventures in Pigeon Forge, and Pirates Voyage in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

"Best Show and Great food!"
October, 2017
We loved the food and entertainment! Everyone around us really enjoyed with us. We had a lot of laughs and tears at the end when all the flags came out and Dolly singing about America! Tears of joy. So proud of their love for America and all people. We have been here several times over the last 30 years and it only gets better. We will continue to enjoy Dixie Stampede!

"Must Miss"
June, 2017
Worst experience for the money ever. Show was totally boring. How do you describe this food....it was probably a step up from prison food. Over seasoned cornish hen with dried up slice of potato and dried ear of corn...no butter or salt for either. Usually you can say at least they offered you a nice cold beer.....NOPE, no alcoholic beverages. No redeeming statement to make for this travesty of a show....DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!

"Dixie Stampede Dinner"
March, 2017
I was very disappointed this time when I ordered my tickets from this site. I've never had a problem until this time. I picked up our tickets Sunday for show on Monday. When I ordered I specifically said we needed south side. Well least to say when we got in there it was on north side. Really!!! We were disappointed and they said there was nothing they could do. Well I called and spoke with someone named Charles and he said that this website is not a guarantee to get on our south side. Well in the future I will not order from here. Because I think that's wrong and to know I order from here and then u get charged handling fees. You should b guaranteed to be seated on correct side.
Not Very HAPPY!!!! So what will y'all do to correct this problem I had?

We've been to the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area for several years during my daughter's fall break. We had considered going to the Dixie Stampede but never put it in our schedule. This year we made sure we did, and the experience was wonderful! The atmosphere and the ability of the riders were spectacular! The food was excellent, especially considering everyone in the arena was served at the same time. Definitely would visit again!

Well, if you want to watch horses run around, watch silly comedy, eat bland food with with no silverware, go right ahead! It basically feels like such a ripoff! Will never go back.

I've been to the Dixie stampede before a few times but this was the first Christmas show I've been to there. They did a great job with the shower and the food was great as always. I would highly recommend the Christmas show even if you've been to Dixie stampede before.

"Christmas!"

Reviewed November 19, 2017 NEW
This was my first time seeing the show and it was great! If you're not in the Christmas spirit when you arrive, you will be when you leave. The live nativity was simply stunning. Magic of toys scene was cute and fun. Dusty is a spectacular rider! All horses were beautiful and very talented. The camels were my favorite part. TC Barnette is just absolutely perfect for the hosting duties. "Skeeter" was a hoot. Kevin in C2 was a great server. Can't wait to go back in the future and see the regular show. Keep up the awesome work, Dolly! Merry Christmas!!

"Stampede Your Family to Dixie!"

We love the Dixie Stampede show. Our family has experienced other type dinner shows in Orlando and Dixie Stampede is by far the best. The pre-show banjo show is always entertaining and the horse show itself is fantastic. The Christmas Show is by far our favorite so if you go in the months leading up to Christmas you get to enjoy an even better show than normal. It’s a good experience and they treat you right and the entertainers do just that...entertain. Nothing bad to say about Dixie, so Stampede your family over now and have fun!
