Dolly’s Stampede delivers new thrills as it kicks off its 36th season


Dolly Parton‘s Stampede kicks off its 36th season Friday, February 10, in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.

Guests can start by visiting some of the 32 horses that are part of the equestrian attraction in their homes on the property. From there, you enter the 35,000-square-foot arena, where you enjoy a four-course meal while watching the show.

The 2023 version adds “aerial acrobatics” that take place “high above the arena floor,” in addition to the usual equestrian feats, music, comedy and storytelling. This year’s experience takes visitors to “America’s Great Plains of yesteryear,” complete with buffalo and longhorns, thanks to the help of an LED wall.
