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.

"Had a blast at the Lumberjack Feud."

This review is a bit delayed but just realized I never appropriately reviewed the amount of fun my family and I had visiting this new adventure location in Pigeon Forge. Our expectations were wide open and we came to have fun on a vacation fully based on having fun. The firsts thing we did was make an appointment for the ropes course. Our reservation for the course was approximately two hours before our Lumberjack show. I will say immediately that this is not enough time if traveling with younger children. Why you may ask? Because we were having a blast and felt pressed on time. Our youngest was a bit intimidated on the lower course and it took her some time to get through. The day we were there it was unusually hot and the lack of shade got to us quickly. So once we finished the lower course we didn't have time to do the higher course or the drop tower. My kids did get to have a blast on the barrel roll interactive and didn't mind getting their feet wet to cool off. During our visit they were still Putting the finishing touches on the harness style coaster which looks like it could be tons of fun as well. The staff working in the harness shop as well as up on the corses were super friendly and loved interacting with my kids. Now for the Lumberjack show. When we entered the stadium we were told that the more the crowd gets into it the better the show will be, and the longer it could go cause the Jacks and Jill's feed off of the energy. Initially thinking this was just a storyline plot of some cheesy yet to be seen scripted show, I was skeptical to say the least. Skepticism aside I was still excited to see what the show had to offer. What we saw was a fully engaged, family friendly, crowd engaging lumberjack show/competition that exceeded any expectations I could have had for this show. Even better was the fact my two daughters were fully immersed. My oldest daughter was so excited for our team she insisted on cheering as loudly as possible and eventually won a lumber donut to take home with her. Both the Jacks and Jill's were great and spent plenty of time allowing the kids to get involved. They were professional and real. I can honestly say that this is one of the best new attractions and shows to see in Pigeon Forge.

My family - babies up to grandparents- had a fabulous time at this show!! We loved the 5 pm showtime - it was perfect for the babies. If you have toddlers I recommend arriving 30 minutes before showtime and sitting in the front row of the bleachers. The kids can walk around at your feet and you don’t have to worry about them falling into people in front of you. It was perfect. The kids had a great time- the jacks and jills did a great job of including them in the show. This is definitely a one-of-a-kind show, a real competition of brute strength and skill. I highly recommend seeing this show!
