Visiting Pigeon Forge, Tennessee is a delight during the holiday season. Festive cheer fills the air and special holiday shows celebrate the meaning of the season. No show in the Smokies entertains during the holiday season better than Dixie Stampede Christmas. Their Christmas show shines brightly and includes a delicious holiday feast for all to enjoy.
If you’ve ever been to the Dixie Stampede show, the Christmas show will be a familiar spin on the original. However, the traditional rivalry between the North and South is turned into a battle between the North and South Pole. Clever, huh? Playful elves add fun and games to the show, during which you cheer and stomp for your favorite team.
Adding to the merriment of the North and South Pole competition are dancing and music segments. During the Toys segment, toys come to life before your eyes featuring a flying sugar plum fairy, larger than life toys and a real horse-mounted toy soldier all set to the music of the Nutcracker. Watch as your child’s eyes grow wide as these toys magically weave a holiday story.
Heartwarming throughout, the Dixie Stampede Christmas Show truly captures the reason for the season with their live nativity scene. The true meaning of Christmas comes alive as three kings riding atop camels on their way to Bethlehem. Angels dance above them, while spectacular songs carry them along. When they reach Mary and Joseph, the birth of Jesus is brought to life in a dramatic manger scene complete with live camels, donkeys and sheep.
Romance and mistletoe are included too, as is falling snow and a special appearance from Santa Claus. The entire 1,100 seat arena is transformed into a winter wonderland, with twinkling lights, evergreens, poinsettias, old-fashioned holiday costumes and familiar holiday music. Take in the sights and sounds of the show as you dine on your four-course holiday feast of a whole rotisserie chicken, hickory smoked barbecue pork loin, herb-basted potato, buttery corn on the cob, creamy vegetable soup, hot homemade biscuit, and special holiday dessert.
The Dixie Stampede Christmas Show is performed November 3, 2015, through January 2, 2016. Reserve your tickets early as this show does sell out during the holiday season.
