Dixie Stampede In Pigeon Forge Tennessee
and the Smoky Mountains

Dixie Stampede

The Dixie Stampede in Pigeon Forge is the place to be for a rip roaring good time right in the heart of the Smokies! Located in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee the Dixie Stampede is only minutes away from The Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

But what is the Dixie Stampede? The Dixie Stampede is a spectacular Pigeon Forge extravaganza that combines music, fast paced rodeo-style entertainment and a delicious dinner. The exciting show begins with fast picking award winning bluegrass entertainers performing in a non-alcoholic popcorn-serving saloon. Next the audience moves into a 35,000 square foot arena equipped with dining tables. There they will be served a full four-course meal while watching the extravagant rodeo-style stage show.

During the meal, the Dixie Stampede serves up plenty of family fun featuring thirty-two champion horses whose riders perform trick riding, roman riding, jumping, a liberty act, chuck wagon maneuvers, buckboard racing and more. Interspersed with the horsemanship are games, songs, and sidesplitting comedy. Of particular fun are the pig and ostrich races involving individuals from the audience.

The Smoky Mountain crowd has its favorite games at the Dixie Stampede. One of them is a special race among small children chosen from the audience. The crowd roars with laughter as they watch the little tikes chase a flock of chickens across the arena. Medals are awarded to the small proud winners whose chickens crossed the finish line first. Identical medals are awarded the other participants with the counsel that everyone is a winner at the Dixie Stampede. Another favorite is a game that involves a few members of the audience who think they are to barrel race champion horses but instead must settle to race stick horses.

The bulk of the Dixie Stampede games actually involve the entire audience. The audience is divided into two teams representing the Yankees and Confederates of the Civil War. The object of the game is to decide once and for all whether the north or south is best---all in good fun of course! Each game is played with a Smoky Mountain flair and is mixed together with plenty of glitzy Dolly-like showmanship. The finale is a grand number intended to make each person proud to be an American.

The Dixie Stampede has a set menu, but a delicious one. The meal is worthy of the grand show it accompanies and the Smoky Mountain culture it reflects. The Dixie Stampede's meal consists of a whole rotisserie chicken, a hickory smoked pork chop, creamy vegetable soup, a homemade biscuit, hot-buttered corn on the cob, herb-basted potato, a flaky apple pie and an assortment of beverages. All food at the Dixie Stampede is considered finger food and so a lack of silverware is part of the Smoky Mountain fun.
