Dolly Parton’s Stampede — An Amazing Dinner Show in Branson

The whole family will enjoy Dolly Parton’s Stampede in Branson, MO. A four-course meal will be served while you are awed by incredible horses and trick riders. The Dolly Parton Stampede Arena has been hosting this family-friendly show since 1987. In a 35,000-square-foot arena, the show features 32 horses and some of the best trick riders in the world.

Before dinner and the show, you can get up close to the equine stars of the show on the Horse Walk thoroughfare. Seeing the horses up close is a highlight for many Stampede visitors, amazed by their strength and grace


Dolly Parton’s Stampede features a four-course meal that includes:

  • Creamy vegetable soup
  • A flaky, homemade biscuit
  • A whole rotisserie chicken
  • Hickory smoked pulled pork
  • Herb-roasted potatoes
  • An herb-roasted potato
  • The Stampede’s current specialty dessert
  • Unlimited Coca-Cola, tea, or coffee


After dinner, the show introduces two different horse and cowboy teams. The guests cheer on their section’s team, adding a competitive element to the festivities. Horses and riders compete in classic Western events, including barrel races, pig races, and carriage races. This year’s Stampede features interactive lighting that features a wall of 12.5 million LED lights.


Also, before the show, visitors can enjoy the cowboy comedy of Skeeter! Of course a real American stampede would not be complete without the majestic buffalo, and the American animal stampede around the arena is something you’ll never forget. The show concludes with a patriotic finale with plenty of sparkles and red, white, and blue.

In true American style, the relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, and dazzling display offer a perfect way to wind down after a busy day.
