Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede is celebrating 30 years in Pigeon Forge, TN!

This year marks the 30th anniversary season of Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede in Pigeon Forge, TN. For three decades the dinner attraction has thrilled audiences of all ages.

At the heart of the show, there are 32 magnificent horses. World-class trick riders display daring feats of horsemanship including the famous Roman Rider. All this with a friendly competition between two sides creates a magical show that’s now a family tradition.

The thundering longhorns have returned to commemorate the 30th anniversary season. These fan favorites 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.

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!”
