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!!!!

"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?

"Share the evening with my wife at the Stampede"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed September 24, 2017 NEW
My wife had never been, I've been here over half dozen times over the years. Always a nice evening. She thoroughly enjoyed it. I would pass on the plastic souvenir boot glasses. However while not usually too big a fan of the photo shot they did an excellent job. Love the new format and captured a very light and happy poses. Food is hands on with no utensils but actually pretty decent. Great show and children loved it! We have smuggled in our own plastic utensils before and that works pretty good. We got teased by the waiter, but they were very cool about it. Enjoy!

Show was ok but disappointed with the dinner. First of all you are expected to eat it without any utensils. Hands only. Messy. Second, they serve you dinner during the show. It was hard to try and eat with your hands and watch the show at the same time. Would prefer dinner first, then show.

"Good Show and Food"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed September 23, 2017 NEW
We went to the afternoon show today. The horseback riding was very enjoyable and the overall cast was professional, more professional than competing dinner shows like the jousting knights. We found the food to be good, particularly the whole chicken. The servers really work hard, and our server Damien, was no exception. My wife and daughter really wanted to see this show for the first time and they were not disappointed. Good crowd even during a slower time in the Smokeys.
