Join Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede Dinner Attraction in Pigeon Forge, TN for a family feast and fantastic show fun for all ages. The 28th season of Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede is THE most exciting and unique yet, as all-new sights and sounds create an atmosphere unlike any other.

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. The 2015 season also features a new musical score and aerial act, along with new state-of-the-art theatrical lighting and sound systems, marking the largest upgrade and investment in the show since its opening in 1988.

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.

"best place in town"
Reviewed August, 2015 NEW
This is hands down the best place to take your family to. This makes my third time coming but this time I took my family which loved it. My kids and nephews ages from 6 to 12 yrs old loved it. There's something there for everyone to love. The food is good. The show is even better. Everyone who works there are friendly and you receive great customer service. Our party of 9 was able to sit together all at one table which was even better. The pre show was great at first I thought the kids wouldn't like it but they enjoyed it just as much as the adults did. Everyone in the group is ready to go back. Looking forward to coming back in the near future.
Tip: Get tickets ahead of time it makes it a lot easier when going in and of course remind everyone that they eat with their fingers no utensils

Our seats were not the best as we were in the corner where the horses and people came out so we missed some of the action. Colorful costumes and great audience participation! Not having utensils to eat with was shocking as I am not a person to eat my food with fingers. The food was tasty and the servers were great!!! He was very affable and fun!

"The Look on Her Face!"
Reviewed July, 2015
We visited over Memorial Day with our 6 year old granddaughter. This was her first visit to Pigeon Forge. The first day was spent at DollyWood. The next evening we went to Dixie Stampede. From the first impression of the Southern Belle greeting us, until the last horseback rider at the shot taking pictures with us, we could not have asked for more. The pre-show was excellent and had our little granddaughter dancing in the aisle. The dinner was more than we expected. When the server placed the food on our little one's face, the look on her face was priceless. The quality of the dinner, coupled with the quality of the show, far outweighed anything we anticipated. I am sure we made some wonderful memories in Pigeon Forge and look forward to returning in the fall.
Tip: If you are taking little ones to the show you may want to take some plastic cutlery. Our little one did not like getting her fingers "messy".

"Mother's day surprise"
Reviewed July, 2015
My wife and I went during mother's day for a surprise for my mother in law and grandmother in law. We were seated in row A which is the very front row. The view was great and the show was amazing. My favorite was the special tricks and jumping through fires, while my wife's was the southern bells. Now the food. You eat with your hands and get a full coarse meal with soup, chicken, corn, biscuits, and dessert. I love the way we got to eat like they would back in the day and have no silverware, and then the way we can still cheer the show on by stomping our feet instead of clapping our hands. All in all the show was great, the staffing was friendly and helpful, and the food was delicious. I got to be on the good side of my in laws ????. So whether it's a surprise or planned family event you are going to have a blast.
Tip: There's no silverware for the food.

I took my children to the Dixie Stampede several times when they were younger. Now my adult children and I are taking my grand children to the Dixie Stampede. We've been twice this year and all just loved it ! Good, clean, fun show to watch while eating a nice dinner. The animals are accessible and clearly well cared for. Parts of the show made the kids laugh out loud. They also enjoyed the pre show. We hope to visit again in the fall. Dollywood is a great place to spend several days at with all family members too !!

My family chose the Dixie Stampede to celebrate my birthday and couldn't have chosen better. The show was dynamic, funny, informative and elegant at various times. We enjoyed the food very much although we took half of it home because there was so much of it, and it was all delicious. I had the most enriching birthday celebration of my life and would be thrilled to see the Dixie Stampede again.

I have been to the Dixie Stampede several times. This was the first time I brought my youngest grand daughters, ages four and eight. They both enjoyed the show. My four year old grand daughter never took her eyes off the arena. She managed to eat without looking down at her plate. She even enjoyed the music before the show. She was frightened at first by the loud noise, but after she was able to see the musicians, she was up on her feet dancing to Rocky Top. It was something both of them will never forget. Wonderful memories for them and me.

This was a great way to end our vacation. We bought the tickets before we left and purposely left this as the last thing we would do, and I'm glad we did. The food was delicious (and there was so much of it!), and the entertainment was very enjoyable. I definitely recommend this event to all!

This is about the 4th time we have been to the Dixie Stampede. My 14 year old daughter and her friend really enjoyed it. She had seen it before, but did not remember much due to her age the last time she saw it. My wife and I always enjoy the show and dinner. We have also seen the Christmas show, it is too is well worth attending.

I wasn't really sure about the pre-show but it was great. The music and the comedy was really good, it is like a bonus show so make sure you don't miss it. I really love the new backdrop and the changes they can make using the screen. The staff here is wonderful, our server was excellent as was the food. I certainly left there feeling quite satisfied. I love watching the kids and adults alike stomping their feet and participating in the fun of the North South rivalry. We sat on the North and we won! The trick riding is impressive but I think my favorite is watching the kids chase the chickens across the finish line. This is a must while you are in Pigeon Forge.

Oh my, what fun we had. My husband and I took our two year old little girl. We visited the horse stables before the show and she picked out her favorite one. During the show she would point out HER horse. The show was fantastic, they did a good job of keeping the audience involved. Supper was delicious, everything tasted great. We did not pay for our little girl a plate knowing that she could share mine. The waitress gave her her own biscuit and an ear of corn.

...is to use them to eat at the Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede.
Really.
All the way from Quebec, we went all over Kentucky and Tennessee. The Dixie Stampede experience was the best night out we had, the pre-show was entertaining, the non-alcoolic drink refreshing, the food what I was expecting and the show... Fun, magical, and definitively out of time.
And don't forget the staff; everyone who work at the D.S. were dedicated to make the experience unforgettable.
Thank you.

I went with my 2 children, 3 and 8, as well as with a friend with her 8 year old. I purchased a ticket for my 3 year old, just so that he would have the space to sit beside me if needed. The food was amazing and plentiful. Even though you pay a lower price for the kids, they don't get any less food (and yes, you can bag it up and take it home if you do not finish). The wait staff was amazing, never had a problem getting a drink refilled (didn't even have to ask). The show itself was very entertaining, and the kids loved the horses and all the tricks. I also liked how they involved the audience in the show. I would definitely come back, and bring the husband next time!!

"Best dinner show by far!"
Reviewed February, 2015
This show was amazing! You arrive early for the pre-show which consists of a mini concert by a banjo playing band called "Mountain Ruckus". They were great! My 12 year old purchased their CD. After the pre-show, you go in to the main auditorium for the most amazing dinner show I have ever been to. The food was fantastic. More than you can finish but you can take the rest home. Everyone (even kids) gets a whole rotisserie chicken, potato log, pork loin chop, corn on the cob, roll, soup, and a dessert croissant. Everything was delicious! Our kids were ages 6, 8, and 12 and they all enjoyed it!
Tip: No silverware. Part of the experience is to use your hands. If I had known, I would have brought a plastic spoon for my soup.

"Dolly Delivers"
Reviewed February, 2015
We really enjoyed our trip to the Dixie Stampede. The food is all prepared to be eaten with your fingers... A whole roasted small chicken, a slice of smoked pork, a potato wedge, a piece of corn on the cob, and an apple puff pastry. We were surprised at first because they bring you a puréed soup but had no silverware. It was fine to drink the soup from the bowl. My wife asked for silverware, and the waiter ( who was great) brought a set of plastic ware which was fine. Once we caught on, we realized it's all designed as finger food. For what it is, it's pretty good.

As for the show, the entertainers were very good. The riders and the horses were very impressive. The host did a great job, as well. They divide the auditorium in two. Half is the "north" and the other half is the "south". They have different contests, and the side with the most wins wins the night. My kids, 10 and 13, enjoyed the show and the family-friendly humor.

The only knock I have, and it's not a big deal, is this. Before the dinner show there's a pre-show. The entertainment is okay, and they try to entice you to buy drinks, popcorn,etc. here. We didn't bite because you're about to eat a large meal. Anyway, when it's time to enter the dinner show, it's chaotic. Thousands of people have to make their way up two stair cases in the back of the room to get in the theater. It's slow and very crowded.

Overall, we had a good experience. And borrowing a page from Disney, when you leave you exit through the gift shop. Just one more chance for Dolly to make a buck. But overall,Dolly delivered. We had a great time!

They also loved the food and thought it was so fun to not have any silverware. The adults enjoyed this as well as we were also cheering our team on.

We visited the Smoky Mountains for the first time this summer and decided to go to Dixie Stampede on our last night. We're so glad we went! I had visited the one in Myrtle Beach many years ago (before it changed to the pirate themed show) so I knew it was an eat-with-your-fingers kind of place. If you know that going in it's fine, and kind of fun! The portions are huge and most of the food is delicious; the only thing I didn't care for was the potato because it was too dry. They do provide doggie bags at the end of the meal if you want/need to take anything home. We really enjoyed the show itself as well. Some parts are a little cheesy-funny but it was enjoyable to see the talented equestrian men & women and their beautiful horses. Our son had a great time clapping, stomping, and cheering on the North side during competitions. We also had a great waiter and that helps!

"Dixie Stampede - Yeehaw"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed September 02, 2015 NEW

I took my family here for dinner and a show while vacationing in Tennessee. We had a great time. We paid extra for the premium seating which was totally worth it. We had a 'lap child' who is under 4 and we were seated on the end which had plenty of room and my daughter-in-law was called down to participate in the show. My grandkids were blown away. They didn't eat much of the food but really enjoyed the show. We had the leftovers later. Come with an appetite, you get LOTS of food. The pre-show was fun as well but skip the non-alcoholic, sugary drinks, you get plenty to drink with dinner and don't forget to tip your wait staff.
