If you know anything about Dolly Parton, then you know she is amazing for putting on a big entertaining show and the Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede is a huge entertaining show! Come early for the PreDinner show and drink your favorite non alcoholic beverage from a boot while enjoying popcorn. You’ve never had so much fun with a fiddle, banjo and a bass before. They played everything from gospel to rock on those things and it was amazing! It’s a hoot and holler type of event that has you singing along.
The main show and dinner is just jaw dropping amazing from the set lighting right down to the costumes complete with lights! There is a friendly North and South rivalry that has you cheering for your side throughout the show and competitions. There is singing, dancing, racing and comedy all in one place complete with an amazing 4 course dinner complete with amazing dessert. We had creamy vegetable soup, a whole chicken, a thick slice of pork, a delicious baked potato and a small corn on the cob. The dessert was the flakiest apple turnover I have ever had. There aren’t any forks unless you are ordering vegetarian, but that’s okay because the wait staff brings along a hot towel to clean up with at the end of the show. Don’t worry about eating everything because they also offer doggie bags to take your meal home. Mine was so good I didn’t have leftovers!
This is a wonder family event complete with audience participation. Wear your boots in case you or your kids are picked to participate out in the dust free arena. You’ll be amazed with the beautiful artistry and amazing animals that bring this show together. Don’t forget to bring some extra cash for treats, pictures and the gift shop where I spied the cutest stick horses. If I could have figured out how to get him to fit in my carry-on he would have made some happy kiddos, but there is always next time. Not close to Dixie Stampede located in Pigeon Forge? They also have locations in Myrtal Beach, NC and Branson, MO.
