The Lumberjack Feud and Dinner Show should not be missed on your trip to Pigeon Forge. While some may think this may only be a “man’s man” show, not only will men like it but so will women and kids. History, comedy, and action, the LumberJack Feud and Dinner Show has it all. I don’t think I have laughed like that at a show….ever.
The show pits one side of the arena against the other in a logging duel over which family will stay on the land. You are encouraged to root for your side, either the Dawson and McGraw family, in a high flying logging competition. There are different logging events like axe swinging, log rolling, tree climbing, and chainsaw carving.
On top of the logging competition you will see log pulling Draft Horses, bears (not real!), and high flying TimberDogs. In between all the competition, you will be laughing at the comedy of an awesome crew, including Ranger Bob and the antics of Camper Bob…who at some point turns into a “lovely” (ahem) lady chasing after the loggers. HA!
What’s cool about the LumberJack Feud and Dinner show is that they offer two options to see their show.
You can do the full blown Dinner Show in which you will get a “lumberjack” style meal, brought in a Smoky Mountain picnic basket, that includes Pigeon Forge BBQ Ribs with all the trimmings. Or, you can do the “Show Only”. With this option, you are not served a meal, but will still see the awesome show!
While this is a 90 minute show, it sure did go by fast. I really enjoyed it. They were able to involve the crowd in a way that children and adults in the audience get to participate in the show in friendly competition – from sweeping up saw dust to climbing a tree. During our visit, we even witnessed a proposal!
When I go back to Pigeon Forge and yes, I will be back, I will definitely bring my husband and kids. They would all love it!
