Join Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede Dinner Attraction in Pigeon Forge, TN for a family feast and fantastic show fun for all ages. The 28th season of Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede is THE most exciting and unique yet, as all-new sights and sounds create an atmosphere unlike any other.
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. The 2015 season also features a new musical score and aerial act, along with new state-of-the-art theatrical lighting and sound systems, marking the largest upgrade and investment in the show since its opening in 1988.

This is our second time visiting. The show was great, they have added animated backgrounds they were nice. The food was not very good, corn was like mush, the tea was instant and tasted awful, soup was not appetizing, other than that it was great!!!

We took places to this attraction at our hotel. The pre-show was great, with three country singers, than we entered the show and it was simply great, very well done and amusing. We had a great evenning
We really enjoyed the whole experience. The show in the saloon was excellent as was the young lady that took our order. Once inside the show the staff was very helpful in directing you to your seat. Josh waited on us and was outstanding. He not only delivered your food (which was excellent) but, he interacted with us also. The person at the ticket window was on top of her game and handled our order very quickly. This is a must attend event.
Fun for all ages. Fantastic meal consisting of a whole chicken, a bowl of soup, bread, vegetables, and desert. Iced tea and coffee. Everything is eaten by hand - no utensils at all. The show was non-stop and very entertaining. Very friendly staff and courteous waiters.
