Dixie Stampede Dinner Show in Pigeon Forge1. Dixie Stampede Pigeon Forge Dinner Show

Dixie Stampede Pigeon Forge is the most well-known of all Pigeon Forge dinner shows, making it our top pick for people of all ages. To make it even better, there have been new renovations made to Dixie Stampede! It is owned by the famous Dolly Parton, who has inspired a lot of the area’s venues for entertainment. Considering its finger-licking good food, you literally will be eating with your hands, and watching a fantastic show with trick riders on horses, you can’t complain when visiting here. The theme of the show is the battle between the North and the South, like in the Civil war. The audience is divided between the two, and cheers their designated side on throughout competitions. When the show is over a winner is revealed and given friendly cheers from all. The outcome is never the same, which makes it a great show to see year after year.

    We were totally let down by Lumberjack show. The food was lukewarm and mediocre at best. There clearly wasn’t enough considering what we paid for it. The only good part of the show was the dogs. We wanted to try it just to say we did, and after our first time, we will not be back.
