We were expecting a show based upon/including Dolly Parton's music and this was a horse show with tricks. The food was good but overall the show wasn't very entertaining and part of our group even got up and left early.

"A fun competition and delicious meal"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed September 15, 2019 NEW
We went to the Stampede with my parents. We have one wheel chair in our group. First off, the site was very handicapped accessible which is a huge blessing. Secondly, the pre-show blue grass band were so good. They were current, hilarious, and talented. Third, the food is tasty. There is so much food but they give you a to-go container. Forth, the show was clever and the competition made it exciting. One tip: don’t buy your tickets online; call the office and buy your tickets- when we called they said you can always get them cheaper if you call.
