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!

Dolly bought this attraction and redone it. The food was not the best but the show was outstanding. The story of Dollys mom and dad falling in love in the midst of the two families always competing. This show has several animals in it as well. If you haven't seen, it i recommend it.

Added this show on with the purchase of Dixie Stampede tickets for our crew. Our meal was good. The show featured some very talented acrobatics. The music lip sync was terrible. The facility would do well to offer more pre-show entertainment. Recommendation: if you're doing both Dixie Stampede and this show, don't do on consecutive nights. Give yourself a break in between. It will certainly make you appreciate this event more.

"Fun Dinner Show!"

If you love the Dixie Stampede, you'll enjoy this show as well. It follows the same formula - similar menu, show with competition, music, acrobatics, dancing, comedy, and more! Parts of the show were a little off - some storylines didn't make sense, the comedy was weak, but overall it was visually enjoyable while chowing down on delicious food. It's a little challenging if you have a toddler who should be in a highchair, because you have to sit in little chairs and hold them in your lap while you eat and watch the show. But my 1 and 4-year olds were both highly entertained and loved the meal.
