There is only a couple of dinner shows the rest are just shows but if you have never done the Dixie Stampede you should do it. Definatley worth the money and really good food.

Both Dixie Stampede and Black Bear Jamboree are the best choices... BB show is more music and dancing.. Dixie Stampede is horses and action and singing loads of fun... if you have not yet seen it, that would be my suggestion. :)

If you go to Dollywood make sure you see the show there named Sha Kon O Hey. We saw it on premiere night and again in July with friends and loved it. It shows 3 times per day (except I think Mondays) and it's included in the price of entry.

My vote is the Dixie Stampede for the dinner/theater, although I have not seen the BBJ show yet.

I think the best show in town is Smith Brothers! I'd have dinner at one of the great restaurants and then go see their show. Nothing can top it! The dinner show food is OK but it's not spectacular. I do think Dixie Stampede is the best one. Best wishes.

Dixie Stampede for sure. Comedy Barn is also great but doesn't include dinner. We hated the black bear jamboree.

We love the Sweet Fanny Adams show - look for it on the main street through town (at the upper end close to Hard Rock).

Hello Brad,

We've done the Black Bear Jamboree, the Dixie Stampede and the Comedy Barn in the past and all were entertaining. On Our last trip (6/15/09) we saw Cirque De Chine. Everyone in our group ages 6 to 46 was AMAZED, this show is in a class by itself. A two hour show for $29.00 adult we thought was money well spent.
