"Great Family Show with good food and service!"

This is a must if you are going to Branson, this makes the fourth time we have attended and we would go again. You need to plan on getting to the ground 1 hour ahead of the show as it takes some time to get past check-in if you have a ticket voucher and not tickets. After check-in you can go to the preshow event, which is part of the event. The arena is big and seating is very fast for the number of people attending. Everyone gets the same meal unless you have other needs. The service is great, you use your fingers to eat. The food is hot and very good. The show is excellent, we had our daughter son in law 3 year old grand daughter and 10 year old grand son with us. The kids enjoyed the show from start to finish as did the adults.

Can't beat the experience and show, and the price includes a delicious meal. I especially enjoy the audience participation. Each time the show is the same, but different. Same types of events, but different results. Been going to Branson for over 20 years, and Dixie Stampede is always included - usually first activity after hotel check in. Starts vacation on a good note!

We’ve seen Dixie Stampede probably 12 times over the last 20 years. My daughter will be going to college this fall and wanted to see it before school started. My wife and I might be over it but what are you going to do. The food is good and the show is pretty good too. It’s a great family show with clean humor. If you have never been it’s worth the money.
