The show is not cheap, but it is full-length, with many features and performers. Much practice and skill obviously goes into each segment. Great energy, and lots of fun. The meal is very good, with generous portions; bring your baggies for leftovers!

Reviewed September 23, 2018 NEW
For a fun-filled night of entertainment along with dinner, this is the attraction for you. You will be amazed at the trick riding; Laugh at the humor; Feel patriotic by the finale. There are numerous costume changes with a variety of acts .... in other words something for everyone. Dinner consists of chicken and ham, rolls, a delicious twice baked potato and fresh string beans. Dessert was an apple turnover. Don't worry ... they will give you a doggie bag as it's more than enough food. There isn't a bad seat in this theatre in the round. Get there early for the pre-show featuring country music.

"No longer Dixie Stampede"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed September 23, 2018 NEW
We have been to the stampede event numerous times. Each time we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It is no longer called the Dixie stampede in order to avoid offending anyone. We enjoyed ourselves again but I never thought the term Dixie was racist and still don’t.
