Christmas at Dixie Stampede is a high-spirited holiday adventure and family tradition.

The “high-spirited adventure” of Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede Dinner Attraction receives a festive twist for the holiday season with the magnificent sights and sounds of Christmas, including a full-scale living Nativity, holiday decorations, Santa Claus and a fabulous four-course yuletide feast.

Guests will be awed by the birth of Jesus re-enacted with Mary, Joseph, the wise men and a living Nativity of camels, donkeys and sheep. This touching scene is a reminder of the importance of the Christmas season.

Families also will enjoy “Toys Come to Life,” an amazing musical fantasy starring The Sugar Plum Fairy and a number of toys she magically brings to life in a musical celebration which includes a stunning aerial display set to the unforgettable music of The Nutcracker.

The 32 magnificent horses, who are the stars of the show, challenge each other in barrel races and other thrilling competitions, and audience members even may find themselves called in to help their side to victory. No Christmas is complete without an appearance by Santa, as Old Saint Nick arrives in his sleigh while the arena is transformed into a winter wonderland of freshly fallen snow.

Christmas dinner, the other star of the show, includes Dixie Stampede’s signature four-course feast consisting of Dixie Stampede’s original creamy vegetable soup, homemade buttery biscuit, a whole rotisserie chicken, hickory-smoked barbequed pork loin, corn on the cob, herb-basted potato, Dixie Stampede’s own specialty dessert and unlimited beverages. Vegetarian meals are available upon request.

Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede in Pigeon Forge is celebrating their 30th season with the return of the thundering Longhorns!

Coming off a record-setting season, Dixie Stampede thunders into the new year with the return of a crowd favorite—the mighty Longhorns. “The Most Fun Place to Eat in the Smokies” celebrated the beginning of its thrilling 30th season on Jan. 13.

David Swangel, Dixie Stampede General Manager, says Dixie Stampede’s cast members and guests are the real reason the attraction is celebrating 30 years of providing quality family entertainment.

“Thanks to all of our cast members and guests for helping us reach the impressive milestone of our 30th season,” said Swangel. “We owe our success as the most-visited dinner attraction in the world to everyone who has come to see us through the years. We’re excited about what the next 30 years holds for us.”

The impressive Longhorns make an appearance during the show as the pioneering settlers move west in search of new lands. For most guests, this is the closest they will come to these magnificent animals. The return of the Longhorns came as a result of guest requests to bring back this favorite show feature.

“We had a number of requests from our guests about bringing back the Longhorns to the show this year,” continued Swangel. “They are fascinating animals that our guests ask for often, so we’re excited to bring them back to celebrate this season!”
