Star Snap Featured Location: Dolly Parton's Stampede

Instagram user @_mernosbisch shared this adorable photo outside by the horse stables at Dixie Stampede. Be sure to tag your photos with #ExploreBranson.

The Dolly Parton's Stampede is a cornerstone in the Branson, MO tourism experience. It’s the world’s most visited dinner attraction featuring dozens of magnificent horses, buffalo, trick riders, racing pigs (yes, you read that right), music and comedy wrapped around a fabulous four-course meal experience. Dolly Parton (yes that Dolly) is the owner of the Stampede and has declared it to be “Branson’s Most Fun Place to Eat!”

In addition to the main show don’t be afraid to arrive a little bit early to meet some of the 32 four-legged stars on the Horsewalk. You can also catch a funny pre-show that begins 50 minutes before the main show.

Perhaps one of the biggest stars of the experience is the amazing four-course meal. It features tender rotisserie chicken, barbecued pork loin, a creamy vegetable soup, homemade biscuits, corn on the cob, baked potato and a specialty dessert. Don’t worry if meat isn’t your thing. They also offer delicious vegetarian and vegan options!

Fun Facts about the Dolly Parton's Stampede

Dolly Parton's Stampede experience was inspired by the childhood dream of Dolly Parton wanting a pony. Needless to say the attraction grew into much more than just a pony ride!

The 32 horses in the show consume 104,000 pounds of grain annually. This helps result in over 832,000 pounds of manure being generated each year!

More than 100 gallons of tea are consumed at each show.
