A High-Spirited Adventure with Dolly Parton’s Stampede Dinner Attraction!

As one of Pigeon Forge’s Top Rated Dinner Shows, TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence Winners, AND The World’s Most Visited Attraction, Dolly Parton’s Stampede Dinner Attraction is always a highlight of any Smoky Mountain vacation!

Families come back season after season to enjoy this dinner attraction which features 32 beautiful horses and world class riders performing thrilling stunts and daring tricks. The Stampede showcases so many talents including comedic, musical, and athletic as well. Growing up nearby Pigeon Forge, Dolly Parton’s Stampede was a real treat for me and my family. I loved watching all the animals incorporated into the show, the audience participations, and of course…THE FOOD!


Be sure to arrive early! 50 minutes before every show you can enjoy hanging out in The Saloon dancing and listening to toe- tappin’ music by Mountain Ruckus! Sip on a cold Coca- Cola and other drinks in a souvenir boot mug that you can keep! (I love using these at home!) After dancing and refreshments, you can get a preview of the main stars of the show. You get the opportunity to walk around outdoor stables and meet some of the beautiful horses that you’ll see later on in the show! This is always one of my favorite aspects of the stampede! Most shows don’t always give the opportunity to meet and interact with the animals, but The Stampede goes above and beyond to make sure you and your family enjoy the experience!


After the Mountain Ruckus Pre- Show, you’ll head into the 35,000 sq. ft. arena where the action packed entertainment begins! As you find your seat you’ll be greeted by your server who will be wearing a color which represents your “team” or side for the show. Sides of the arena are divided into North and South which will be the sides competing in family- friendly events throughout the show. Be sure to cheer on your side as they compete in different challenges! Special effects, musical productions, and family friendly comedic adventures are incorporated into this one of a kind show- which really lives up to its reputation as a Top Rated Dinner Show in Pigeon Forge!
