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 Lumberjack Adventure in Pigeon Forge, and Pirates Voyage in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

"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!!!!
Tip: There are other dinner shows available to spend your hard earned money on.

"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?
Tip: Don't use this site if they don't guarantee your seats

We had a group of 10 travel to Pigeon Forge for the first time. We throughly enjoyed our trip. We ended the trip after visiting Dollywood with a visit to the Dixie Stampede. We all enjoyed the show and the meal very much we look forward to a return visit in the near future.
Tip: Be prepared for some southern hospitality

This is our 2nd time visiting the Show and it was as great as I remembered! I wish the photos were cheaper, it would be a great memento, but with the cost of the show, we just couldn't swing it.

"Band mom shenanigans. "

Went on school band trip to pigeon forge. The nazi band moms INSISTED this be a part of our trip for 100 6, 7, and 8th graders. City kids. Probably three horse lovers in the group. My husband had been before and had assured me and my sons that the horses actually come up and eat off of your plate. So, I already had my doubts. Well, it's almost $70 to sit in an ice cold 'arena' reeking of the sunshine and roses that horses drop everywhere and eat a meal - in the dark- with no utensils- and no liquor. At least the walls are high enough that the horses can come up and put their noses over it -- but they can not actually eat off your plate. But seriously, you want me-- a 48yr old middle class old lady to pick up a Cornish hen and eat it like a corn dog. In public ????? Me thinks not. I am telling you -- not a single kid in our group left calling mom or dad begging for a pony. It's a hokey show with a battle between the north and south. Some pyrotechnics (in a small, indoor arena. Granted, the sulfur odor helped mask the sunshine and roses mentioned earlier. And, like all things Pigeon Forge , it ends on a patriotic note and salute to our troops. It's how they ensure that all shows end with a standing ovation. Clever, eh?? It is what it is. It is wildly popular apparently. I ran by earlier in the day to pick up my tickets at will call and bus after bus was rolling in and dropping off large groups. It is advertised everywhere. I do mean EVERYWHERE. The Dixie Stampede is much the face of Pigeon Forge as Dolly Parton herself. The music in the (non alcoholic) bar area before hand is pretty entertaining. However, charging $40 for a kid's meal, forcing them to eat with their hands while watching horses dance is not the intro to dinner theater I anticipated for my boys. Kids on a band trip do not need a $40 meal. Let's leave this one to the over indulgent grandparents or parents with a predilection for all things horse/Wild West. Search online for ticket deals/packages. The staff at the ticket office were super helpful when I called them prior to buying my tickets. Most of the wait staff I dealt with in the actual arena were on auto pilot. The "bartenders" were really funny. I think they are used to the incredulous expressions of people that realize they must endure this completely sober. Things I would do differently next time ? Eat before I came. Pack utensils and napkins in my purse. Bring a flask.

It was cool that they honored both active and retired military but damn was it a tight squeeze. If your a big person buy yourself an extra seat because your going to need it. Food and show (horses) were ok. Dolly is great but they talked her up like she was God himself. Not on my list of things to do again.

The show was decent, the food could have been better and with silverware. My biggest complaint is that while you try to watch the show the servers keep getting in you way blocking your view and miss part of the show. It would be better to serve you before the show so you could see the whole show.
