Dixie Stampede is changing it name to “Dolly Parton's Stampede”

The event now just goes by Dolly Parton's Stampede, a sign of shifting cultural norms.

Music legend and celebrity Dolly Parton announced Tuesday that her "Dixie Stampede" has been renamed "Dolly Parton's Stampede". "Some examples are Smoky Mountain Adventures or Dixie Stampede". Parton says the change streamlines the name, and removes any concern or confusion visitors may have.

There are now locations in Pigeon Forge; Branson, Missouri; and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

The dinner attraction, which is owned by World Choice Investments, has plans to expand into new communities around the world in 2018.

The move comes amid controversy over symbols of the Confederacy, including the Confederate monuments and flags and the word "Dixie", a historical name generally given to the South. The name is already changed on the attraction's social media accounts and website.


It says the dinner show features, "A friendly competition between North and South".

"We evaluate the show at the end of every season and update and make changes", he said. In a piece for Slate, writer Aisha Harris panned the show as making light of the Civil War. The decision to drop "Dixie" from the name was made based on the fact that "attitudes change".

Well, like everybody else, I love Dolly, and I love all that she's done for our community, which is her community, and I'm disappointed that they're yielding to political correctness. "We provide spectacular family entertainment at a great value".

Cohen said the company likely put a lot of research into the name change. "What's next? Are we going to change the name of Dixie cups and the Dixie sugar company?"

For the new season starting this January, the producers are also retooling the show and re-writing parts of the script.
