Description

from Dolly Parton's Stampede Dinner Attraction
Join Dolly Parton's Stampede Dinner Attraction in Pigeon Forge, TN for a family feast and fantastic show fun for all ages. Celebrating over 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.

Stampede offers two shows in one – one-of-a-kind pre-show entertainment 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 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 Stampede’s house band during the pre-show.

The Four Course Feast includes:
  • Whole Rotisserie Chicken

  • Hickory Smoked Barbecued Pork Loin

  • Stampede's Original Creamy Vegetable Soup

  • Scrumptious Homemade Biscuit

  • Hot Buttered Corn on the Cob

  • Tasty Herb-basted Potato

  • Stampede's very own Specialty Dessert

  • Unlimited Coca-Cola, tea or coffee


In November and December, Dolly Parton’s 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.

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!

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?

Dolly has gone to “white”-washing a show that now features “the north” and “the south”. One represented by a communist inspired red flag and star the other a socialist inspired blue flag and star. The only patriotic part is a short ensemble at the end with the US flag. With all the other local attractions and food of much higher quality our family’s annual trip will be altered in the future.

family trip - wife, my parents and our 3 year old. Our daughter loved the entire experience....had some ticket issues up from but these were solved by the staff at the Sevierville welcome center and we made our show. Facility is generally modern and clean...food was better than expected and staff great. Wonderful night for children and families.....
