BRANSON, MO (Oct. 23, 2017) – Tis the season when Christmas at Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede transforms into a beautiful holiday spectacular.
Opening Thursday, October 26th, folks who experience Christmas at Dixie Stampede will be amazed at the complete show makeover including a full-scale living Nativity, holiday decor, seasonal music, a Santa Claus sighting and a fabulous four-course family feast.

All new, Adagio On Ice
This year, Christmas At Dixie Stampede adds a touch of grace to its holiday show with a special presentation, “Adagio On Ice”, featuring world renowned ice skaters, Kassandra Hazard and Luke Munana; who appear exclusively for the holidays in Branson.

"This is our favorite time of year,” explained general manager, Bryan Cossiboom. “Families have made Christmas at Dixie Stampede part of their holiday tradition. There’s nothing like everyone coming together over a good meal. We invite everyone to come celebrate the true meaning of Christmas.”

The Christmas show features a seasonal twist with a friendly rivalry between the North and South Poles full of equestrian feats, music, comedy and audience participation. Guests will be awed by the birth of Jesus portrayed in a living Nativity with Mary, Joseph, three wise men atop real camels, shepherds leading donkeys and their flock of sheep. Of course, no Christmas would be complete without an appearance by Santa — Jolly Old Saint Nick arrives in his sleigh, as Dixie Stampede's arena is transformed into a winter wonderland of fresh fallen snow.

The entire Christmas celebration is complemented by a four-course holiday feast consisting of a whole rotisserie chicken, hickory-smoked barbecue pork loin, herb-basted potato, buttery corn on the cob, creamy vegetable soup, homemade biscuit and special holiday dessert.

Admission includes a unique holiday dinner and show experience set in a 35,000-square-foot arena featuring 32 magnificent horses, thrilling horsemanship, holiday pageantry and audience participation, showcased in a friendly rivalry between the North and South Poles, all complemented by a fabulous four-course holiday feast.
