Why You Should Plan a Visit to Dolly Parton’s Stampede in the New Year

New years are made for new adventures! And what better kind of adventure is there to experience than our high-spirited one at Dolly Parton’s Stampede in Branson? If you didn’t have the chance to visit us during the holiday season, you can catch our holiday show the first week of January, or plan an early spring trip for when we kick off our new season! Here’s why you should plan a visit to Dolly Parton’s Stampede in the new year:

1. Start the New Year with a High-Spirited Adventure

We would love to kick off the new year with you in the best way possible — at our Branson dinner show! Our show is open on New Year’s Day through the following Saturday. If you’re in the area, come see our holiday show one last time before the season ends! Our show brings the true meaning of Christmas to life right before your eyes as three kings ride atop camels on their way to Bethlehem, and our Stampede arena is transformed into a winter wonderland with twinkling holiday lights, snow falling softly, and more. At the end of February, Dolly Parton’s Stampede reopens for a brand new season! You can celebrate spring with a visit to our world-class dinner attraction and watch as our 32 magnificent horses and cast of talented trick riders show off their talents with incredible stunts. Whenever you choose to visit, you’re guaranteed the same thing: an unforgettable experience in the new year.

2. Southern Comfort Food

Another reason you have to plan a visit to Dolly Parton’s Stampede in the new year is to enjoy our four-course feast! Whether you’re visiting the first week of January or early spring, nothing will help keep you warm during the chilly temperatures quite like our Southern comfort food. Our dinner is delicious any time of the year, offering guests a hearty meal that satisfies all their country cravings. It will remind you of all the home-cooked meals you share with your loved ones on special occasions. It starts off with our famous creamy vegetable soup, which has become such a hit with all our guests that we started selling our soup mix online. If you fall in love with it like everyone else, be sure to stop by the gift shop before you leave to pick up a couple bags so you can make it at home! The meal also includes a homemade biscuit, a tender whole rotisserie chicken, a hickory-smoked barbecued pork loin, buttery corn on the cob, an herb-basted potato, and the Stampede’s very own specialty dessert. This feast hits the spot every time, whether you visit in the winter, spring, summer, or fall!

3. A Family Tradition

New years are all about setting new goals and creating new traditions, and there’s no better tradition than visiting Dolly Parton’s Stampede. Our attraction is a family tradition, and we love welcoming visitors back year after year to enjoy the magic at our Branson dinner show. You don’t want to spend another year missing out on everything our world-class attraction has to offer! After one visit to our show, you’ll already be planning your next trip for more long-lasting memories and high-spirited fun. Although the basis of our show stays the same, we’re always thinking of new additions and exciting moments to incorporate in our performance to make each of your visits to the Stampede better than the last. Most recently we added a breathtaking aerial act that features cast members performing high above the arena floor and an original Dolly Parton song, and we can’t wait for you to see what comes next! There’s no better time than the new year to start a new tradition of visiting Dolly Parton’s Stampede!
