Paula Deen's Lumberjack Feud

Paula Deen's Lumberjack Feud

Originally, the Lumberjack Feud opened in 2011. This popular and very fun dinner show centered around the competition of two (2) teams of ESPN’s professional lumberjacks. Showcasing their distinct skills of tree climbing, ax swinging, chainsaw carving, and the ever popular log rolling, and other logging related events, this one-of-a-kind performance was always an exciting show to watch.

The Lumberjack Feud was acquired in 2015 by Dolly Parton and, after they overhauled the theater, became known as Dolly Parton’s Lumberjack Adventure. The “new show” began to feature more acrobatic, aerial acts, and many special effects. Less than a year later, Dolly Parton decided to move away from the “lumberjack” themed show in order to begin producing a show about her family. The new attraction, dubbed Dolly Parton’s Smoky Mountain Adventures, opened in April of last year.

Now, Paula Deen’s Lumberjack Feud will be presented in a more “lumberjack comfortable”, and probably more appropriate, outdoor setting. The new show will be located at 2530 Parkway in Pigeon Forge (which is Walden’s Landing). Here, in addition to the Lumberjack Feud, you’ll also find The Tomb Escape Game, Calhoun’s, Smoky Mountain Brewery, and The Forge Cinemas,

This new Lumberjack Feud in Pigeon Forge we’re told will open on May 1, 2018. We encourage you to visit the official website for the attraction by clicking here, but the new website is not live yet.
