Family Traditions are Created and Celebrated at Branson’s Top Dinner Attraction when Christmas at Dixie Stampede Begins on Oct. 27
When Christmas at Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede Dinner Attraction opens Oct. 27, the action-packed family fun show will transform into a beautiful holiday spectacular. Folks who experience Christmas at Dixie Stampede (Oct. 27- Dec. 31, 2016) will be amazed at the complete show makeover including a full-scale living Nativity, holiday adornment, seasonal music, a Santa Claus sighting and a four-course feast.
Impressive new technology highlights Branson’s family-favorite Christmas show, dazzling audiences with a 150-foot wide LED wall backdrop that displays stunning holiday vistas that change with each scene. Enhancements in state-of-the-art sound and lighting systems also enrich guests’ holiday experience.
Families will be mesmerized as they watch “Toys Come to Life,” an amazing musical fantasy that accentuates this Christmas entertainment. The Sugar Plum Fairy appears in a sleepy toyshop and magically brings all the toys to life in a musical celebration that includes a stunning aerial display set to the unforgettable music of “The Nutcracker.” It will delight the child in every member of the family.
“Christmas is my favorite time of year. It’s full of fond family memories,” Parton explained. “At my Dixie Stampede, we celebrate family time and the true meaning of Christmas. We invite families to come make memories with us over a good meal and wholesome entertainment.”
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 reenacted with Mary, Joseph, the wise men and a living Nativity of camels, donkeys and sheep. 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 freshly 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.
