Heartwarming Christmas Show Comes to Life at Dolly Parton’s Stampede this Holiday Season

The “high-spirited adventure” of Dolly Parton’s Stampede Dinner Attraction receives a festive twist for its 35 th holiday season with the magnificient sights and sounds of Christmas, including a full-scale living Nativity, holiday decorations, a new aerial performance, Santa Claus and a fabulous four-course yuletide feast. The Christmas show at “The Most Fun Place to Eat in the Smokies” debuts Nov. 2 and runs through Dec. 31.

“Christmas is a very special time of year at Dolly Parton’s Stampede,” said Travis Randall, General Manager of the Stampede in Pigeon Forge. “While our thrilling show provides fun for our guests, we also take time to celebrate the true meaning of the season, thanks to a full-scale, living Nativity that will transport guests back to that first Christmas so long ago. It’s special to our entire cast and staff when families share with us that this show has become a treasured part of their annual holiday traditions.”

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.

Stampede’s 32 magnificent horses, not to be confused with Santa’s reindeer, race in exciting competitions as audience members cheer their respective sides of the North Pole and South Pole on to victory. No Christmas is complete without an appearance by Santa, so after the arena is transformed into a winter wonderland of glistening, freshly fallen snow, Old Saint Nick arrives by sleigh to complete the festivities.

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