Who doesn’t love dinner and a show?
When you visit Pigeon Forge, you get both at the same time, thanks to multi-platinum country singer Dolly Parton. The Queen of Nashville has made it easier to fill your tummy after you enjoy the diverse attractions of Pigeon Forge with a show that wows kids and adults alike. Let’s learn more about the horsebound capers you’ll experience during the Dolly Parton Stampede Dinner Show.
First – The Basics
The Dolly Parton Stampede Dinner Attraction takes place daily, at approximately 3:30 pm and 6 pm, at the following address:
Dolly Parton’s Stampede Dinner Attraction
3849 Parkway road
Pigeon Forge, TN 37863
Because the show is so popular, you can’t just walk in wearing a pair of jeans and your best Stetson cowboy hat. You have to book your place in advance by calling 1-800-987-9852 or by getting tickets online at the Dolly Parton Stampede Donner Show website.
What Can You Expect from the Show?
Unfortunately, the show’s namesake, the world-famous recording artist and founder of the Imagination Library, Dolly Parton, probably won’t make an appearance at the Stampede Dinner Show. While the show carries her name (and plays her music), Dolly is an extremely busy woman. But don’t be disappointed. You’ll be so wowed by what’s on offer, along with Dolly’s music, that you’ll feel her presence even when she isn’t there.
Enjoy the World-Famous Horse Walk
If you turn up early enough, you may get a chance to see something special – the 32 four-legged stars of the show up close and personal. The Horse Walk is perfect for little (and big) riders who want a guided tour along with an introduction to the talented horses that take center stage during the show itself.
It’s an educational tour, too. Your guides tell you all about the special measures followed to ensure the horses are properly cared for and trained to execute the various stunts in the show.
Acrobatics Along with Horse Riding
While the horses are the main attraction, the people in the show aren’t slouches. They’ll thrill you with the masterful control of their steeds and executing stunts that feature tons of twists and turns.
But it’s the human acrobats that steal the show.
Combining skills you’d only see at the best rodeo with acrobatic performances that rival those in Cirque du Soleil, the show’s acrobats fly through the air, leaving smiles on the faces of everyone who sees them in action.
A Fantastic Four-Course Feast
Of course, you can’t forget the most important aspect of dinner and a show – the food. Your ticket entitles you to a delectable four-course meal of Southern-style classics. Rotisserie chicken, herb-basted potatoes, barbecued pork loin, and homemade biscuits all make it onto the menu.
And don’t worry if you have special dietary requirements. The menu carries options for vegetarians and those following gluten-free diets.
Pig Out at Pigeon Forge
Like a superstar descending from Dollywood, Dolly Parton delivers southern-style comfort with a dash of the incredible with the Stampede Dinner Attraction. Marvel at the horses during the Horse Walk. Watch in awe as the acrobatics display their talents during the show. And enjoy a meal so sumptuous that you’ll leave feeling like royalty.
