Dolly Parton's Stampede Dinner & Show

The menu includes scrumptious homestyle creamy vegetable soup with warm biscuit, herb roasted potato, whole Rotisserie chicken, barbecued pork loin, and an in-house special dessert. They also have a special vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free menu.
While you watch the show, the waitresses will bring delicious drinks with both alcoholic and non-alcoholic options for you to enjoy. As you enjoy your food, the show begins. You can imagine some world-class country style entertainment with cowboy style entertainment. The Stampede show includes some riding events, competitions, carriage race, live buffalo run, and much more within its 35,000-square-foot arena. In the end, Dolly Parton will address all her guests with an exciting speech through a giant theater-like screen. Guests are advised to pre-book their tickets and arrive a bit early to enjoy the pre-show.
Showboat Branson Belle
For a spectacular dining experience on a riverboat while watching a show, take America’s sensational and most entertaining Showboat Branson Belle River Cruise. This dinner show includes three separate shows, including a magic and comedy show by Christopher James, live concert by the talented Show Men group, and jaw-dropping performance by the aerial violinist by world-famous Janice Martin.

Branson Murder Mystery
While patrons have a tasty dinner of meatloaf and baked chicken alongside a salad bar and sides of mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, mac & cheese, and green beans, actors roam on and off the stage. Audience members can even volunteer to be part of the action themselves. As the production progresses, more clues are revealed, and you get your own chance to solve this whodunit. As members are getting ready to perform in a talent show on the town square, one of them mysteriously dies!
