At Dolly Parton's Stampede in Branson, MO, your whole family can get into the country spirit. You'll enjoy a four-course homestyle meal while you're dazzled by incredible horses and trick riders. This family-friendly show has been impressing guests at the Dolly Parton Stampede Arena since 1987. Situated in a 35,000-square-foot arena, the show features a total of 32 gorgeous horses and some of the best trick riders in the world. Before the dinner and show starts, you can walk along the Horse Walk thoroughfare to get up close with the equine stars of the show. Meeting the horses in person is a highlight for many Stampede visitors, who marvel at the strength and grace of the four-legged stars.
The show kicks off right at dinnertime with an introduction to two different teams of horses and cowboys. Guests cheer on the team representing their section, adding a fun, competitive element to the festivities. The talented horses and trick riders compete in a wide variety of classic Western events including barrel races, pig races, and carriage races. Interactive lighting featuring a wall with 12.5 million LED lights sets a stunning backdrop for the feats of showmanship at the Stampede.
Visitors enjoy excellent service from the waitstaff and the cowboy comedy of Skeeter before the show, too. Of course, no real American stampede would be complete without the glorious buffalo. You'll forever remember seeing the quintessential American animal stampede around the arena. The show closes out with a patriotic finale with plenty of sparkling red, white and blue.
It's no wonder that Dolly Parton's Stampede is often called "Branson's most fun place to eat." No matter how many times you've visited Branson, you can always count on the talented horses and riders to put on a true country show.
