Nothing compares to the family fun you’ll have together when you visit our world-class dinner attraction. We’ve been entertaining families for more than 35 years and look forward to doing it for many more years to come. Our show features something for everyone, from thrilling horse riding stunts and tricks for the adventure seekers to comedic skits from Skeeter and our resident chicken, Nugget, for those who want to laugh. Become a part of a high-spirited adventure featuring 32 beautiful horses, talented trick riders, stunning music productions, and spectacular special effects.

If you’re visiting during the holiday season, come to Dolly Parton’s Stampede to enjoy a heart-warming performance with a live nativity and more festive fun. It’s the perfect way to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas with your family!

2. Family Feast

Another reason families love Dolly Parton’s Stampede is because of the four-course family feast we serve each of our guests. This Southern comfort meal is sure to satisfy all your country cravings. The best part is that it will remind you of the home-cooked meals you share with each other in your kitchens back home. Both kids and adults will love digging into a dinner that includes our signature creamy vegetable soup, a homemade biscuit, a tender whole rotisserie chicken, a barbecued pork loin, an herb-basted potato, buttery corn on the cob, and a hot flaky apple turnover. You’ll also get unlimited Coca-Cola®, tea, or coffee. We work hard to ensure everyone gets to enjoy the dinner portion of our show, which is why we also offer special meals upon request. When making your reservations, let us know if anyone in your party would like a vegetarian or gluten-free meal.

Arguably the best part of our dinner for families, however, is the fact that silverware is optional! Feel free to dive right into our feast with your hands — in fact, we encourage it! Kids love finally getting the OK to put the forks down and eat with their hands. No matter how you choose to eat it, your family will love sharing our four-course feast together.
