Best Comedy Variety Show

The Best Comedy Variety Show in Pigeon Forge goes to The Comedy Barn! This award-winning show has been named the most attended and most successful clean comedy theater. Once you visit, you’ll understand why. This isn’t your typical comedy show — performers include comedians, jugglers, ventriloquists, musicians, dancers, and adorable animals! Each of these performers specializes in making the audience laugh. In fact, you’re guaranteed at least a laugh a minute when you visit. Witness dogs, cats, or birds showing off their impressive skills, meet Bonzo the Monkey with help from the ventriloquist, or see daring items like sickles and bear traps be juggled! You’ll be laughing all evening long as you watch the acts unfold. There’s even a chance for audience participation! Getting the audience involved at The Comedy Barn guarantees that no two shows are the same, making it even more special.

Most Patriotic Show

The Most Patriotic Show superlative goes to one of our most popular sister shows, Dolly Parton’s Stampede. Take a trip back in time and watch an incredible show that brings everyone together to celebrate America in a patriotic conclusion. You’ll see flying doves of peace, red, white, and blue costumes, and more, all while listening to an original song by Dolly Parton titled “Color Me America.” In addition to the patriotic grand finale, visitors will get to watch 32 magnificent horses and a cast of talented trick riders show off their skills in the 35,000 sq. ft. arena, as well as listen to stunning musical productions and enjoy spectacular special effects. The show also features aerial performances, buffalo and longhorns, and a delicious four-course feast.

Best All-You-Can-Eat Meal

Southern Homestyle Feast

Our favorite Pigeon Forge show with the Best All-You-Can-Eat Meal goes to the Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Feud. This show offers feudin’, feastin’, and family fun, with an emphasis on the feastin’! All guests will be served endless helpings of a Southern homestyle feast, served family-style, that they’ll get to eat during the show. As you watch the Hatfields and McCoys try to settle a decades-long feud, enjoy Feudin’ Fried Chick’n, Open Pit Pulled-to-Pieces Pork Barbeque, delicious sides, and more. The show itself features jaw-dropping stunts, mighty feats of strength, singing, and dancing! You can expect an evening of mouth-watering food and hilarious antics when you visit the Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Feud!

Most Action-Packed

While all of our favorite shows are filled with entertainment, our superlative for Most Action-Packed goes to Pirates Voyage Dinner & Show. Our show provides non-stop action throughout the evening. The best part is that the action begins before the show does with our Join the Crew experience! Visitors can transform into a swashbuckling pirate or a beautiful mermaid before the show for an additional fee. Then, take your seats and get ready for a four-course pirate feast that’s served right as the action begins! While you eat, watch in amazement as pirates battle on land, on deck, in the air, and in the water for the coveted pirate treasure. There’s sword fighting, cannons blazing, impressive acrobatics, and more. You’ll also be introduced to Salty the Sea Lion, dock-diving dogs, and mermaids! Our action-packed pirate adventure is one you don’t want to miss.
