Sometimes you just don’t feel like making multiple decisions. For example, if you’re planning a night out on the town during your Smokies vacation, you may not feel like wading through all the local dining options (especially if you have picky eaters in the family) and also finding a show that everyone wants to see. With many area theaters, however, they make things simple for you by offering shows that include dinner as part of the evening’s entertainment.
Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede in Pigeon Forge has been using that formula for years, complementing their friendly North-South competitions and horseback exhibitions with a multicourse meal that features chicken, creamy vegetable soup and flaky biscuits, just to name a few.
Two of the more recent contenders in this arena include the Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Feud and Lumberjack Feud, both in Pigeon Forge. With the first one, you become a Hatfield or a McCoy as soon as you enter the theater and from there, you cheer for your clan as the two families fight things out to settle their differences. With the latter, two different families are going at it, but this time, they’re hashing things out with real-life lumberjack athletes competing in a series of ax-citing events. Both shows include multicourse meals.
You’ll also find dinner and a show at the Smith Family Dinner Theater and the Murder Mystery Dinner Theater, also both in Pigeon Forge. No matter which city you visit, however, always remember to check back with our Web site for the latest information to help you plan your great Smoky Mountains vacation.
