Tis the Season for Christmas at Dolly Parton’s Stampede

Experience the spirit of Christmas at Dolly Parton’s Stampede Dinner Attraction this holiday season. Now through January 5, 2019, families can create new traditions at America’s #1 Choice For The Holidays! With a full-scale living Nativity, four-course feast, and an arena full of the merriest sights and sounds, every guest will leave jollier than Old Saint Nick.

Live Nativity

To celebrate the reason for this holiday season, guests will watch a special re-enactment of Jesus’ birth with Mary, Joseph, three wise men, and a living Nativity with live camels, donkeys, and sheep. This touching scene reflects on the importance of Christmas.

Toys Come To Life

Taking a whimsical turn, The Sugar Plum Fairy brings a number of toys to life for a magical celebration in “Toys Come to Life.” Including stunning aerial displays set to the unforgettable music of The Nutcracker, families can watch in awe as their childhood fantasies come to life.

Stampede’s 32 magnificent horses, not to be confused as Santa’s reindeer, will race one another in exciting competitions as audience members cheer their respective sides of the North Pole and South Pole to victory. And after the arena is transformed into a winter wonderland of glistening snow, Old Saint Nick arrives by sleigh to complete the festivities.

The entire holiday experience is enhanced by the state-of-the-art, LED wall in the show’s 35,000-square-foot arena, which seamlessly complements the exciting action with stunning holiday scenery. Guests will feel as if they have been instantly transported to the clear skies above Bethlehem on the night of Jesus’ birth.

Four-Course Holiday Feast

Adding to the lineup, Christmas dinner includes Stampede’s signature four-course feast consisting of Stampede’s original creamy vegetable soup, homemade buttery biscuit, a whole rotisserie chicken, hickory-smoked barbequed pork loin, buttery corn on the cob, herb-basted potato, Stampede’s own specialty dessert and unlimited tea, coffee or Coca-Cola® products. Vegetarian and gluten-free meals are available upon request.

Exciting Pre-Show & Holiday Entertainment

Guests are invited to start their fun-filled evening when they arrive early for side-splitting holiday comedy and Christmas classics during the exciting pre-show entertainment included with every Stampede ticket.

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

Coming off a record-setting season, 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, Stampede’s General Manager, says 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!”
