Dixie Stampede Dinner Attraction
Dolly Parton first opened the Dixie Stampede Dinner Attraction in Pigeon Forge, TN in 1988.

With two shows and dinner in one ticket and entertainment ranging from daring stunts to side-splitting comedy that's suited for the whole family, this show is bound to be the highlight of your family vacation!
About 50 minutes before Dixie Stampede Dinner Attraction starts its dinner show, guests are welcome to wander the open-air stables, meeting the true stars of the Dixie Stampede Pigeon Forge cast – the horses! Horse-lovers of all ages are sure to enjoy the majestic, muscular build of the American Quarter Horse, the golden coats and white manes of the Palomino horses, and the speckled coats of Appaloosas.
After getting to meet the stars of the show, follow one of Dixie Stampede's charming Belles, beautifully dressed in period dresses, and enter the 2-level Saloon for the opening act, Mountain Ruckus! This bluegrass trio will have you stompin' your feet and slappin' your knees with their lively renditions of bluegrass classics, country favorites, and maybe even a few surprise numbers from the pop charts! Enjoy refreshments, such as popcorn and sodas, while Mountain Ruckus amuses with their comedy, country, and bluegrass all in one wonderful opening act!
After this entertainment appetizer, it's time to move on to main show in the massive 35,000 square foot arena! To add to fun, seating is divided into North and South sections (Rumor has it the best seating is in the South section). Throughout the show, competitions are held between the North and the South and points are tallied at the end to see who wins! Dixie Stampede Dinner Attractions offers guests a filling 4-course meal that is delivered throughout the show and includes scrumptious fried chicken, delicious pork,a flavorful baked potato, buttery corn on the cob, a flaky biscuit, creamy vegetable soup, and a delectable apple turnover.

However, it's not all about the horses! Enjoy the memorable piglet race and perhaps get to participate in the great chicken race!
