Description

from Dolly Parton's Smoky Mountain Adventures
Dolly Parton’s Smoky Mountain Adventures Dinner & Show is a riveting, high energy and romantic production that takes guests on an exciting journey back to a time that tells a tale of Dolly’s own family history. Adventures and a spectacular old-fashioned Hootenanny feast await as the mountains are filled with high-flying action, music and more!

The great traditions of the Smoky Mountain people are proud and steeped in history. Food, Faith, and Family is the fiber that is woven throughout these mountains along with rivalry and romance. Our show includes a special love story on how Avie Lee Owens and Lee Parton got together and became Dolly’s Mom and Dad. However, it was not before a bit of competition had taken place between the Partons and Owens in the Great Smoky Mountain Family Contests.

Our story is filled with music, laughter, edge-of-your-seat special effects, thrilling specialty acts, competitions, and romance– the type that brings families together. Acrobatic performers will display their abilities on aerial silks suspended three stories above the stage; perform a balletic display above the stage on suspended hoops called Lyras; and will defy gravity in and on the amazing Electro-wheel, all within the context of Parton's exciting story.

Arrive early and enjoy the spirit of thrills and fun. Inside Bass Mercantile, kids of all ages can get a makeover and become a hearty Mountaineer or a beautiful Mountain Princess! We have snacks, music and more.

Every family gathering needs a hearty meal! Dolly’s family members have brought their best dishes for Avie Lee’s Sunday Dinner!

Avie Lee’s Sunday Dinner Includes:
  • Dorothy Jo’s Homemade biscuit

  • Grandma’s Creamy Vegetable Soup

  • Avie Lee’s Fried Chicken

  • Aunt Martha’s Southern Peach Pie

"Fun, energetic show"
September, 2017
We have been vacationing in this area 27 years and are always trying the new shows. We were pleasantly surprised at the show. The performance had a good historical story and the acrobatics was outstanding! The food was tasty and plentiful. Our opinion is the dinner show was well worth the money spent. The size and layout of the arena offered good views for all.

The show was awesome and the food was delicious! They have a nice store and snack bar to browse before the show. During the show my son got to go on stage and he was absolutely ecstatic! My son is hearing impaired and the employees did a fantastic job of making sure my son had the equipment he needed to fully enjoy the show! We will definitely visit again!
