PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (WATE) – Officials announced Thursday that the Dolly Parton’s Stampede dinner show will resume operations in time for the Independence Day holiday weekend.

World Choice Investments, the owners of The Comedy Barn Theater, Dolly Parton’s Stampede, Hatfield and McCoy Dinner Feud, Pirates Voyage and Smoky Mountain Opry, closed the dinner shows in mid-March, citing coronavirus pandemic concerns.

“We are excited to have our longest-running dinner show open on July 3 as our area celebrates the biggest holiday weekend of the summer and as we get back to entertaining families with this unique show,” “Like our other operations, we will be observing the guidelines provided by the Tennessee Pledge.”
