The Dixie Stampede Reveals "New Adventure" For 2016 

Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede is really getting a new face lift. This is the first time since it was established in 1995 that it is being remodeled. The biggest feature being installed is a stone wall that has a dazzling new LED state-of-the-art light show. It has thousands of lights along with new lighting systems plus a new sound system.


Along with the new additions to the show it will still feature the 4 course meal served during the show. Here is just a few facts about the show.

  • There are 32 horses in the show.
  • The horses prance around in a field of 200 tons of white sand trucked in form South Caroline each year.
  • Twenty yards of lace and ribbon go into making each Stampede Southern Belle Costume.
  • The Conestoga wagons are 25'8" long and 9' high and are pulled by large Belgian Draft Horses weighing aprx. 2,000 pounds each.
  • There are about 50 white Doves raised on site that take to wing during the grand finale.
  • The horses alone eat 104,000 pounds of oats each season plus 3,000 bales of hay eaten and another 13,200 bales of bedding hay or straw plus 528,000 pounds of pine mulch.

Now the show varies from year to year and season to season but you probably could see pigs, camel, buffalo, ostrich mule and more.

The show includes many featured trick horse riders and lots of fun for all in attendance.
