Pigeon Forge is home to some quality dinner show entertainment. These shows are great choices for unwinding at the end of a busy vacation day. You get dinner with added bonus of entertainment!! Our family has experienced the majority of these firsthand, so I can say without a doubt they are worth seeing!!
Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede – With Dolly Parton in the name, you can only expect the best! This show is entertaining and fun for all. Our little divas love to arrive early, so that we can catch the great pre-show in the saloon. Bluegrass music and comedy get you in the mood for the fun ahead. Next up is dinner and you will be amazed at how quickly and efficiently the arena is served. I don’t want to spoil any fun so just know that you will enjoy your 4 course feast. Soon afterwards, the show begins. It involves cowboys and cowgirls performing horse riding stunts, fun audience participation events, as well as cool lighting and special effects. All of them served up with a little patriotic flair. Your family won’t be disappointed in this show!!
Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Show – You will love this place from the moment you pull into the parking lot!! The outside yard décor is very country and comical and is the perfect backdrop for some great family photos. Some of our favorite vacation pictures are ones that we have taken here. Dinner is served family style, and it is one of my favorite Pigeon Forge meals because they serve pulled pork BBQ. It is all you can eat so you definitely won’t leave hungry – unless you choose to!! Once the show starts, you will find yourself completely caught up in the singing and dancing and who knows, you might even start tapping your toes or clapping your hands. This hoedown between the Hatfield’s and the McCoy’s is an all-around good time!!
Lumberjack Feud – This is probably the most unique of all the dinner shows and a family favorite for us!! Dinner arrives in individual tin boxes, so as you are eating, you get the feel of picnicking in the mountains!! Creamy mac-n-cheese is part of this feast which makes both of the little divas perfectly happy. This show is a true competition from the lumberjack athletes to the timber dogs. You find yourself cheering them on as they race for the win. The girls’ favorite part is the “wood” cookies that you can get as a souvenir for the athletes to autograph after the show.
Smith Family Dinner Theater – We have not yet had the privilege of seeing any of their shows yet, but it is definitely on our To-Do list. The theater actually offers several different shows which cover a variety of interests and music genres. They serve up a country style buffet for dinner. Sounds like a good time to me!!
Don’t miss out on these great dinner shows; they are definitely a part of every one of our family vacations to Pigeon Forge!
