from Paula Deen's Lumberjack Feud Show
Wildly popular Lumberjack Feud returns to Pigeon Forge! Rip-roaring, high-energy family fun guaranteed for both the young and the young at heart.

Journey back in time to the days before the establishment of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park when the logging industry ruled the area. The show features an “end-of-season” feud between two families whose names were synonymous with the timber business – the Dawsons and the McGraws. World-class lumberjacks represent both families in a variety of thrilling, fast-paced tests of skill and prowess ranging from chopping and axe throwing to tree climbing and log rolling.

Guests become part of the experience as they join in the competitive spirit, cheering for their Dawson or McGraw lumberjack family. And children are invited to try their hand at cross-cutting with a lumberjack during the show’s intermission.

Located at Lumberjack Square, the 350-person outdoor venue home to Paula Deen’s Lumberjack Feud will feature padded seating under a covered, climate-controlled grandstand designed for the guests’ comfort. The show will operate rain or shine with the season running through December.

Please Note: This show is NOT a dinner show. However, several restaurants are located nearby in the Lumberjack Square.

"Lumberjack Feud - Best Attraction I have ever been to!"
January, 2019 NEW
The Lumberjack Feud is the best attraction I have ever been to!!
It is very fast paced, energetic, fun; the entire audience is involved with the show.
There is a story line associated with the show making it a contest between 2 sides of the arena including the audience. Much like the old "Hatfield versus McCoy" feud.
The show gets the kids involved from the start to the finish-- this is a contest for all ages.

Tip: Be prepared to get involved with the fun! Be prepared to shout as loud as you can!

January, 2019 NEW
This was the only show we attended while in the Smoky Mountains. The show was great and they did an awesome job involving the crowd (kids). I’m so glad our family saw this. My kids are 3,4,5&6. The perfect length of time. Nice seating with padded seats and backs on the benches. I’d highly recommend this and I’d definitely go again!

"Fun Family Time"
November, 2018
It was truly cold the night we went to the Lumberjack Feud but our laughter and the talent of the lumberjacks kept us warm. These guys toward the end fell into the water. We knew the water was heated BUT, they came out of the water and entertained us more. If you looked around the audience, you'd see smiles and laughter on faces of all ages from 1 to 101. Sure it's an exaggeration but I didn't see a frown or hear a negative word from anyone. We got our tickets thru reserve Pigeon Forge and the ease was amazing and the savings was wonderful. We had six people so we had to watch our pennies. I would recommend this show to everyone.

This is a show for the whole family! They put a lot of effort into their show and it shows. It’s just like the Lumberjack games you see on TV. So much fun! Plus they have a small intermission to let the kids get on stage and help them.

This was our first time to PD’s Lumberjack Feud and it did not disappoint. We make 1-2 trips to the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area every year and have visited many attractions with our kids (now 6 and 8). This has been voted by my kids as the best one so far. Audience participation is encouraged and my daughters were selected to help out at the beginning of the show. This made their day. They also won a “cookie” during the show and a “sculpture” (I don’t want to ruin the surprise) so it was a great night for my kids. They also encourage children to come down to the stage during intermission to participate in an activity with the Lumberjacks. My husband and I really enjoyed everything also. PD’s butter cream soda is a must try. I highly recommend this show! We plan to come back.

Nothing but good old family fun for all ages. We went here on a very cold Christmas Eve night and were happy to see that the seats had overhead heaters to help keep us warm. However I would suggest a winter coat and to bring a blanket for your legs. My wife and I are in our 50s and this was definitely the way to go. The show was great and the lumberjacks were a nice bunch of guys. The show was 100% real and introduced me to the ways of a lumberjack and lumberjack history.

A must see show. It was very entertaining. The staff were friendly and welcoming. My 9 year old daughter loved it because they kept the crowd involved. They called children down to take part in the show. The staff/lumberjacks were very talented. We don’t normally say we would watch a show again but we will most Definitely be back to watch this show.
