from Paula Deen's Lumberjack Feud Show
Wildly popular Lumberjack Feud returns to Pigeon Forge! Rip-roaring, high-energy family fun guaranteed for both the young and the young at heart.

Journey back in time to the days before the establishment of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park when the logging industry ruled the area. The show features an “end-of-season” feud between two families whose names were synonymous with the timber business – the Dawsons and the McGraws. World-class lumberjacks represent both families in a variety of thrilling, fast-paced tests of skill and prowess ranging from chopping and axe throwing to tree climbing and log rolling.

Guests become part of the experience as they join in the competitive spirit, cheering for their Dawson or McGraw lumberjack family. And children are invited to try their hand at cross-cutting with a lumberjack during the show’s intermission.

Located at Lumberjack Square, the 350-person outdoor venue home to Paula Deen’s Lumberjack Feud will feature padded seating under a covered, climate-controlled grandstand designed for the guests’ comfort. The show will operate rain or shine with the season running through December.

Please Note: This show is NOT a dinner show. However, several restaurants are located nearby in the Lumberjack Square.

"Lumberjack Feud - Best Attraction I have ever been to!"
January 2019
The Lumberjack Feud is the best attraction I have ever been to!!
It is very fast paced, energetic, fun; the entire audience is involved with the show.
There is a story line associated with the show making it a contest between 2 sides of the arena including the audience. Much like the old "Hatfield versus McCoy" feud.
The show gets the kids involved from the start to the finish-- this is a contest for all ages.

Tip: Be prepared to get involved with the fun! Be prepared to shout as loud as you can!

Really enjoyed our evening. Bleacher type seating, padded benches with backs. We ate at Calhouns and walked next door for the show, but several people carried in food. Several restaurants in walking distance. Lots of laughs and entertainment for the whole family. Enjoyed the sport and friendly competition between sides. Also learned some interesting things. Loved the interaction with the audience and how they involved the kids. We got discount tickets through our hotel, otherwise we might have missed out on this great night!

My family had an evening full of excitement and many memories after watching the lumberjack show! We have three boys ages 12, 9, and 6. Each of boys were included in the show at different times and each received a lumberjack "cookie" souvenir!!! I highly recommend you and your family attend a show! Our boys are asking to go again so I'm sure we'll return next time we're visiting town!

My husband and I took our daughter and her family to this show. We all enjoyed it very much. The almost two year loved the cheers and hand clapping. The four year old loved using the big saw with the help of the lumber jacks. The six year old was loving the competition between the feuding families! We now live here in Tennessee and we’re looking forward to seeing this fun family show again.
