Attention fans of Lumberjack Feud! This show has returned to the Smoky Mountains. You read that right—this crowd favorite is back in Pigeon Forge. This time, the show is helmed by no other than famous southern chef Paula Deen. As a result, you know you’re in for a good time!
Curious to learn more about the Lumberjack Feud show? Read on for all the details you need to know before you go!
The Feud: Who’s Fightin’ Who?
The Lumberjack Feud pits two families, the Dawsons and McGraws, in a family-friendly competition as they compete in feats of strength, agility, skill, and more. In total, there are 11 competitive lumberjack events including axe throwing, log rolling, and speed climbing. If you went to the previous version of this show, those family names may sound familiar. However, there’s a whole lot new about this show too!
New Lumberjack Feud Location
The families feuding may be the same but Paula Deen has revamped this show in more ways than one. For instance, this Pigeon Forge show takes place in a 350-person outdoor venue at Lumberjack Square (previously known as Walden’s Landing). In addition to the Lumberjack Feud, Lumberjack Square is also home to The Forge Cinemas, The Tomb Escape Game, Smoky Mountain Brewery, and Calhoun’s.
The new location, moving from indoors to outdoors, adds a more authentic feel to the festivities. Don’t worry about the outdoor venue lacking any creature comforts, though. The venue features padded seating under a covered, climate-controlled pavilion. The show operates rain or shine, spring through December. However, that just means you get to see these world-class lumberjacks compete in weather conditions deemed by Mother Nature. Really hot? Pouring cats and dogs? These lumberjacks can take it!
What to Expect at the Lumberjack Feud
This show is set in the days before the Great Smoky Mountain National Park opened, a time when the logging industry ruled the land. As such, lumberjacks and their skills were very valuable. In fact, they were something to be proud of! Both the Dawsons and McGraws like to show off their skills and, boy, does it make for an entertaining show!
The Lumberjack Feud is a show that wows again and again. You’re sure to think “How’d they do that?” multiple times throughout the performance. You’ll become a part of the experience, too, as you cheer on your lumberjack family. The new Lumberjack Feud show also lets guests participate in a competition of their own on stage. These engaging events will include simulated lumberjack activities like speed climbing, log rolling, and springboard chopping. Plus, this show also offers hands-on activities for the kiddos.
Even More Lumberjack Feud Attractions
The fun doesn’t stop there, though! A Lumberjack Feud Adventure Park is opening, too. Attractions include:
- Extreme zipline roller coaster
- 80-foot jump tower
- Multi-level lumberjack-themed adventure park
- Exciting aerial kid’s playground
