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.
