Dolly Parton’s Stampede Celebrates 35th Anniversary Season With Thrilling New Segment Featuring Original New Music From Dolly

For guests taking in Dolly Parton’s Stampede during its 35th season in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, an all-new thrilling and moving performance segment has been added to this dinner show — combining the show’s equestrian stars, breathtaking aerial acrobatics and original new music from Dolly herself.

This addition truly multiplies the excitement at the Stampede, as the segment kicks off with performers riding astride horseback on “wild horses.” After taking a lap around the Stampede, the performers’ aerial talents take them to new heights high above the arena floor, while a new Dolly Parton original song aptly titled “Wild Horses” sets the scene for a breathtaking display guests won’t want to miss.

A Bigger-Than-Life Experience

While guests will be thrilled by the new show segment, the Stampede experience begins outside the main arena. Guests can get up close and personal with some of the show’s “mane” stars at the Horse Walk. Everything in Dolly Parton’s Stampede dinner and show – from the first feat of the talented equestrian performers to the last bite of the delicious four-course feast – is bigger than life. Guests enter the 35,000 square foot arena where the main show begins with the cast leading the show’s 32 magnificent horses through a series of truly extraordinary equestrian feats of skill and daring. Thanks to a state-of-the-art LED backdrop wall, guests are immersed into an experience set in America’s Great Plains of yesteryear, where live buffalo and thundering longhorns roam and settlers bring the American West to life. With singing, dancing, special effects, the new amazing aerial act and impressive displays of horse-riding skills, guests truly feel like they are on the American frontier and then nestled under the stars in the Great Smoky Mountains.
