Dolly Parton knows how to bring the entertainment to Pigeon Forge. While her dinner show at Dolly Parton’s Stampede is a fan-favorite year-round, the Christmas show is truly something captivating! From twinkling lights to magnificent show horses and the amazing live nativity scene, this is a holiday show for the books. Ready to make forever holiday memories with your family?

Welcome to a Smoky Mountain Fantasyland

Make Christmas At Dolly Parton’s Stampede Part of Your Family Tradition

Each November, the Stampede arena is magically transformed into a fantasyland with evergreens, poinsettias, old-fashioned holiday costumes, and twinkling lights. The holiday experience is enhanced by the state-of-the-art, LED wall in the show’s 35,000-square-foot arena. Guests will instantly feel as if they are experiencing the natural beauty of Christmas from the foothills surrounding the Great Smoky Mountains, while looking into the clear skies above Bethlehem on the night of Jesus’ birth.

The Battle of the North and South Pole

Everyone loves some friendly competition, right? Christmas at Dolly Parton’s Stampede features a playful twist with a friendly rivalry between elves in the North and South! 32 magnificent horses will race one another as audience members cheer their respective sides of the North Pole and South Pole to victory. Both sides win at the end of the day, as musical productions of Christmas classics will dazzle the audience. Even Santa makes an appearance, arriving in his sleigh and turning the fantasyland into a Winter Wonderland complete with snowfall.

The True Meaning of The Season

Marvel at the Live Nativity - Christmas at Dolly Parton’s Stampede

The true meaning of the season will come alive right before your eyes! You’ll marvel at the live nativity, a portrayal that is both dramatic and spectacular. Three kings arrive atop real camels while shepherds guide their flock, all reminding you of the spirit of the season. Did we mention the arena brings in 32 horses for this special show as well?

Enjoy the Holiday Cheer and Feast on a 4-Course Meal

We hope you come hungry for the 4-course dinner feast, because it is fit for a king! Your plates and tummies will be full after a delicious meal that includes a whole rotisserie chicken, hickory-smoked barbecue pork loin, herb-basted potato, buttery corn on the cob, creamy vegetable soup, and a homemade biscuit. Then, top it all off with a sweet treat – an apple turnover. TIP: Dunk your biscuit in the soup for maximum enjoyment!

The holidays are the most special time of year for families, and we hope you make Dolly Parton’s Stampede part of your annual family tradition. Get your tickets and see why Christmas at Dolly Parton’s Stampede is The Smokies #1 Choice For The Holidays!®

Top 5 Reasons to Spend Christmas in the Smoky Mountains

Shop for handmade items from Pigeon Forge’s maker community like Pigeon River pottery, specialty jewelry, or forged knives. Can’t forget about a visit to Christmas Place either. This year-round Christmas store has everything you could possibly dream of. Including visits from Santa!
  2. Winterfest and Its Holiday Lights: Smoky Mountain Winterfest is one of the biggest annual events, covering the Pigeon Forge Parkway and surrounding areas in twinkling lights. You can even see them on a self-guided driving tour through mid-February. Dollywood’s Smoky Mountain Christmas also has holiday lights and performances.
  3. Holiday-Themed Shows: Your favorite dinner shows and theaters put on special performances every holiday season. The Comedy Barn Christmas Show and Christmas at Dolly Parton’s Stampede are two that you do not want to miss out on! Here is the full list of holiday shows.
  4. Comfort Food: Pigeon Forge knows how to do Southern hospitality with family-style eateries serving home cooked favorites. The Old Mill Restaurant is a can’t-miss no matter what season you visit. Here is a list of restaurants open during Christmas.
  5. Cabin in the Woods: Cozy up beside the fire at one of the many cabin rentals in Pigeon Forge. They come in all sizes: small and cozy to larger ones with space for the whole family. You can also select one with amenities like hot tubs and a pool table!

Regardless of age, everyone will be in awe seeing the magnificent display of lights.

One of our favorite times of year to visit Pigeon Forge is in the winter. Believe it or not, winter hikes in the Smoky Mountains are the best, especially when there is a little snow on the ground. The snow-covered mountains are a must-see.

Winterfest is also one of the best times of the year to enjoy a cabin stay. Who doesn’t love warming up by a fireplace after a day of exploring Pigeon Forge during Winterfest? And the views from your cabin are breath-taking.

Oh, and visiting during the winter is a great time to do all your holiday shopping, too. I make a trip to Pigeon Forge during the holiday season for some Christmas shopping every year.

Be sure to plan your visit during Winterfest in Pigeon Forge now and make a lifetime of family memories this holiday season.
