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.

"A Great way to End the Day"
August, 2016
We had wonderful evening. Our seats were excellent to see the entire show. The girls, age 10, loved the trick riding and laughed at the chicken chases and pig races. They waved their flags and were thrilled to have them signed after the show. It is great on this day and age to enjoy a truly family show!
Tip: It was great to book early and come early to the show.

Went as a child and remembered it being really cool experience so couldn't wait to take my kids back. Food is awful for the price so very disappointed with that. They ask for a 15% tip on top of the expensive tickets I was not aware of this and had no cash maybe tell us that when we order the tickets. Show is very corny but my kids loved it so I will give the show 3 stars the show could be better and the food needs a lot of help. Downright nasty

My son loved the food that was served and my daughter could not wait to the end when they get to meet the horses and riders We had a nice evening and the kids loved it. Heads up, the food is served in such a way that no silverware is offered. Our hotel concierge suggested getting plastic forks from the coffee shop in our hotel. But they have hot towels at the end so you don't leave with sticky hands. We plan to return on a future visit to the area.

The food was delicious but had to be eaten with your fingers only. Wet naps were provided for cleanup. The service was excellent. The show was amazing. It was hard to see everything on at once between eating and watching the show. It is mildy interactive but not intrusive. There were photos taken in front of a green screen that was supposed to be offered to you at some time during the show but we never saw them.....Aside from that this is a definite must see while in Pigeon Forge. Make sure you come hungry.

We've been here quite a few times over the yrs, and it's always worth seeing. This Dolly Parton owned attraction is set in a huge indoor arena. I won't spoil the show, but if you like horses, and watching people who know how to ride, you'll enjoy it. The food is pretty decent here. But, be prepared to eat with your hands. It's BBQ, and corn on the cob, etc... I'd bring some wipes or germ-X., unless you like sticky fingers. The service is always good, and that's saying a lot considering the volume that packs in there for a show. If you're not a local, this place is a little pricy. I'd look for a coupon or promotion(they're out there)... All n all, it's worth a visit. Enjoy

The six of us enjoyed the pre-show and dinner performance at the Dixie Stampede Dinner and Show. Parking was plentiful and easy. The tickets were easy to obtain on-line and claim at the will-call booth. The pre-show was excellent although many seats could only see the stage using TV monitors. Service was uniformly excellent. The main show was Very Good. Seating was good throughout the large arena/theater. The performers did a superb job. The special effects were Excellent. We did feel sorry for the animals that had been trained to do fairly unnatural moves. The meal was Very Good in quality and Excellent in quantity. Exiting the theater was orderly, but slow. We would recommend the experience to any visitor to the area.
