The Smoky Mountains tourist area is known for such attractions as the beautiful national parks with truly breathtakingly beautiful sights. The area is also known for its exciting attractions such as Dollywood theme park, Ripley’s Aquarium, and the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not Museum. Yet another defining aspect of the Smoky Mountain tourist scene is its family friendly entertainment shows, particularly its dinner shows. Two phenomenal dinner shows in the Smoky Mountains tourist area (Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and Sevierville) are Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede Dinner Attraction and The Hatfields and McCoys Dinner Feud.
Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede Dinner Attraction is a nationally recognized brand of dinner family entertainment synonymous with Pigeon Forge. The Dixie Stampede offers a full entertainment and dinner experience. The evening begins at the Dixie Saloon where guests can marvel at the beauty of the live animals that will be featured in the evening’s performance. Upon entering the saloon itself, you can whet your appetite with popcorn, peanuts, soda, and non-alcoholic fruit drinks before you begin dinner in the arena. Opening act entertainment is also provided in the Saloon with the Bluegrass and Country band, offering guests family-friendly comedy and a perfect blend of country and bluegrass music. After enjoying the saloon, enter the 35,000 square feet arena for the main event. Dinner at the Dixie includes a whole rotisserie chicken, barbecued pork loin, vegetable soup, homemade biscuits, corn on the cob, baked potato, and a specialty dessert. After dinner, sit back and cheer as you enjoy the main entertainment: Dolly Parton’s World-Famous Dixie Stampede. Set up as a competition between North and South divided by the arena (in the style of Medieval Times), the show features pyrotechnics, strobe lights, live animals including top breed horses, bison, and ostriches, stunts, and a musical celebration appropriate for the entire family. Just minutes from all other Smoky Mountain locations and attractions, Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede Dinner Attraction is at the top of the list of family emphasized dinner shows in the Smoky Mountain tourist area.
