"Mountain acrobats"
July, 2018 NEW
The show and meal occurred at the same time which helped it not to seem long. This is important for teens and children. The food was tasty. You could ask for seconds unless they run out. The performance was acrobatic and entertaining but not connected well within a theme. The antics were impressive and kept the interest of the kids. The adults were left with the question of what was this performance about? However the performers worked hard and were talented. This is a one and done event.

Love going to Pigeon Forge and seeing all my favorite shows. Dinner shows are great. You combine great food (and a lot of it) with very entertaining shows. I made the comment when I purchased my tickets that I have trouble with stairs. Where did they put me——-front row!! Very pleased.

"Good times"
June, 2018 NEW
We went to this show on our second night of our vacation. The chicken served was very meaty and tasty. The show was fun, especially the two comedians. They might not speak, but were hysterical! The show reminded me of a Cirque de Soleil with the acrobatics. Our server was very nice and attentive. The only complaint we had is that the food is continually served throughout the show. With the lights dimmed, it was sometimes hard to see what was on the plate and even the server's walkway is lower, they still were in the way occasionally while watching the show. I would prefer my meal be complete so I can thoroughly enjoy watching the show. That is the same reason we did not repeat the Dolly Stampede.

We attended the Celebration as the result of tickets we purchased at Dollywood. I was pleasantly surprised and delighted with the experience. We arrived and went into the spacious auditorium to sit in seating very similar to the Dixie Stampede. We were served a delicious and generous four course meal with soft drink or tea. The coursed included Baked Chicken, Ham, Mac and Cheese, rolls, soup and dessert. We were offered all we could eat and we were full with the first round. Then the show began. It was a 'Celebration of Life and Community and Relationships Theme'. It included tumbling and acrobatics, Arial and dogs and dancing. The show was well choreographed, colorful and just fun to watch. Much of the money that Dolly makes goes to charity. I felt good about donating in such a fun and delicious way. I personally think this was one of the better dinner shows I have invested in at the Smokeys, because the food and entertainment were both good and not over-the-top.

I've been a huge fan of the Stampede show but thought we'd try this new show. We didn't go early for the pre-show time so I don't know what that was about. Our server, Candace, was great. Food was typical fried chicken meal, nothing spectacular, kind of like cafeteria style food but that's totally what I expected. The peach turned over was delicious. The show started out a little slow with some clowns that were not funny at all. Perhaps a fun hillbilly music band would be more entertaining while food is being served. It was hard to watch the unfunny clowns and get food and drinks. Once the show got going it was very good. I wasnt a fan of the master of ceremonies lady. She was saying all the right lines but lacked true personality and connection with the audience. The show mainly consists of cirque-style acrobatic acts which were really good and enjoyable to watch. I wouldn't spend money on a premium seat. Take the cheaper seat, eat an OK meal and enjoy a good show.

Dolly has really remodeled this show and the building. Entry area is very large now and accommodating. The food served is very good and all you can eat. The show itself is entertaining and enjoyable. Let’s of talent. Worth watching at least once.

What a great show my only complaint is that the show needs a little pre show or something to keep the guest entertained that the only reason it got four stars now with that being said it was a wonderful show last night on Friday the 13th wow is all I can say I can’t spoil the show but with the meal I can it’s all you can eat. Creamy Vegetable Soup Homemade Biscuit Sugar-Cured Ham Pan-Fried Chicken Signature Mac ‘n’ Cheese Sweet Potato Delight and a Specialty Dessert which is a peach turnover
