Best Comedy Dinner Show

Smoky Mountain Murder Mystery Dinner Show

Looking for big laughs on your night out in Pigeon Forge? The Great Smoky Mountain Murder Mystery Dinner Show is probably one of the most hilarious shows in the Smokies.

Though this dinner show is smaller than some other theaters in the area, it's known for having excellent audience interaction. As the plot unfolds, you'll learn more clues to try to solve the mystery. The colorful characters and surprising twists in this show will keep you guessing the whole time!

Several Shows running at the Smoky Mountain Murder Mystery Dinner Show:

You can't experience a good dinner show without a delicious meal. Luckily, The Hatfield and McCoy Show is known for its tasty country-style cooking.

The show features singing, dancing, stunts, and hilarious antics from the feuding Hatfield and McCoy Families that you can enjoy while you eat. Along with lots of excellent, old-fashioned music, you'll be treated to a home-style feast that includes:

  • Fried Chicken
  • Open Pit Pork Barbecue

Best Overall Performance

Dixie Stampede in Pigeon Forge, TN

As one of the first dinner shows to open in Pigeon Forge, Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede is a classic performance that delivers big to this day. Owned by national star and hometown hero Dolly Parton, the Dixie Stampede is a crowd-pleaser year after year.

Upon entering the large, recently renovated arena, audience members will be seated on the 'North' or the 'South' side of the theater to witness a friendly, spirited competition. Throughout the show, you'll get the chance to root for your side while performers perform incredible equestrian stunts to win the 'battle'. Talented riders perform tricks, ride through flaming rings, and even stand on the backs of two horses.

The show is also known for its high-quality production and talented singers and dancers. Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede's food is 'finger-licking good,' not only because the meal is served without silverware, but also that it features country classics everyone will love.

Before the show, you can personally meet some of the stars of the show: the horses in at the horse-walk near the ticket counter.
