Music and Laughs in the Great Smoky Mountains

There is certainly no shortage of things to do and see in and around Pigeon Forge. Gorgeous scenery, fantastic shopping, whitewater rafting adventures, and award-winning theme parks are just some of the entertainment choices that bring tourists to the Great Smoky Mountains. But if you love a live show, this is one part of the country you should make a point to visit.

Dinner and a Movie Will Never Be the Same

Take a mouthwatering meal and add world-class entertainment, and what do you get? A dining adventure to rival favorite date-night activities everywhere. Dinner theater in Pigeon Forge has grown beyond the piano bar and show tunes into something truly spectacular. Dolly Parton's Stampede starts with a herd of cattle (or Bison) rushing into the arena, and it doesn't slow down again until after dessert. Stunt-riding cowboys and cowgirls, fantastical magic acts, and down-home bluegrass music keep young and old alike entertained while they enjoy a four-course southern meal.

Dolly Parton's Stampede

Dinner theater wouldn't be complete without a murder mystery to solve, and that's just what you'll find in Pigeon Forge. Enjoy some hilarious grown-up entertainment and solve a crime – all before dessert! Unlike the extravaganza event at Dolly Parton's Stampede, these intimate dinners encourage audience participation, so don't be surprised when you end up as part of the act.

Can't get enough of dinner theater? No problem! You'll even find country comedy complete with feuding and a fabulous meal. Hatfield and McCoys is the place you want to be for the best food, all you can eat and a great show. Now a part of the Dolly Parton shows and better than ever.

Music and Comedy to Make Everyone Smile

Family friendly acts straight out of vaudeville will entertain everyone in your group. Singing, dancing, pratfalls, and hilarious sketches can all be found on Pigeon Forge's stages. From musical comedy to bumbling magicians, there's plenty to laugh at in the Great Smoky Mountains.

If a good old-fashioned concert is more your style, check out the shows in Pigeon Forge. Up-and-coming stars entertain with a unique blend of country music, gospel, and patriotism.

Watch for famous names like The Oak Ridge Boys, Tracy Lawrence, and Ronnie Milsap, just to name a few.

Smoky Mountain Opry

Smoky Mountain Opry is a high energy variety show featuring music from all genres. From broadway hits to country music to classic rock, and everything in between. Talented dancers and funny comedians grace this million dollar stage and entertain the young and old alike. Boasting Pigeon Forge's largest cast of singers and dancers will also feature high flying aerialists and quick-change artists, and an incredible live band on stage.
