“I want my guests to have some down home foot stompin’ excitement,” said Dixie Stampede owner, Dolly Parton. “Part of the fun at my Dixie Stampede is giving the audience the unexpected, and these big birds are that. It’s just amazing!”

They use their wings as "rudders" to help them change direction while running. An ostrich's powerful, long legs can span 10 to 16 feet in a single stride.
During the “World Famous Ostrich Races”, Dixie Stampede performers ride the ostriches around the arena in a battle for first place. Guests will be amazed at the performers’ ability to hang on ride on top of these precarious birds.
About Dixie Stampede: Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede is a unique dinner and show experience set in a giant 35,000-square-foot arena featuring 32 magnificent horses, a stampede of buffalo, Rumble In The Treetops lumberjack relay, thrilling horsemanship, pageantry, romance and patriotism, all showcased in a friendly rivalry between North and South and served with a fabulous four-course feast.
